Ramona du Houx’s July gallery in Solon, Maine: Celebrate Summer!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Summer stirs the soul to celebrate by being in nature. Long days and warm nights spent at the beach, camping on a boat all energize our beings for the year to come. It’s the opportune time to experience natures’ wonder and to just be who you are.

The Greek philosopher Heraclitus wrote, ‘You can’t step into the same river, twice.’ Today, most of us are too busy to contemplate how much nature’s motion surrounds us, or is within us. We don’t normally see how interconnected rhythms of nature are apart of us.

Modern society plugs us into the Internet, and that can open doors, but sometimes too much of being Internet connected disconnects us from the mysteries of the natural world that can be transformational. Scientists, innovators and inventors throughout history took the time to observe nature and her interconnected rhythms.

I would like to show how nature’s interconnectedness can lead us to discoveries about our world and ourselves.

Please enjoy my gallery of this season.

Every month Ramona du Houx exhibits her work on her online gallery and at Gallery Manitou in Solon, Maine. Every month the theme changes reflecting the personality of the “lightgraphs,” she has chosen for the month. “Lightgraphs” are a technique she created that makes photographs resemble watercolors.

The inside gallery at the Framemakers, 46 Main Street, downtown Waterville, features the artwork of Daniel Cake, Scott Reed, Ramona du Houx, Dorene Paul-Hebda, Lisa Wheeler, and Neal Caron until July 13th. In watercolor like landscapes, portraits, gardens with pastel flowers, and animals and birds displaying their secrets these works by local artists captivate and inspire. The artists’ work reflects central Maine.

Painting with the camera can create the sense of being personally close to an object through colors, textures, memories, and the seasons. With a landscape that’s exemplified because of their never-ending vastness that somehow surrounds us in an embrace. For me landscapes inspire contemplation, and patience. That and the sensation of being at home, welcomed by nature’s warmth.

Sometimes I feel the need to get down to the sea and connect with nature’s way.

Our bodies consist of the same proportion of water as the earth. We are creatures of the sea. The draw of the ocean has been written about time and again. There is something more vast and more mysterious about the sea than anything else on earth. It’s something similar to the vastness and mystery of the universe itself. Our planet is just one in our solar system which is connected by the vastness of space. Is the relationship we have with the ocean a microscopic reflection of the relationship our Earth has to space?

“The relationship between people around the world with their natural surroundings is a continuing theme of mine. The resilience of the human spirit emerges in amazing ways. Continue reading
