The word for this week is intense.
The adjective meaning: existing in an extreme degree; marked by great zeal, energy, or eagerness, showing strong feeling.
This exotic flower was part of a centerpiece and I just loved the energy it puts forth making it a perfect example for intense. Does it command your attention or what? I know! It is just a flower but the composition and the striking position just demands that you look at it. Wonderful I think. By focusing your awareness to something so normal and turning it into something so captivating is what art is all about for me. Enjoy, appreciate and experience the world around you. After all, it is our artistic perspective that gives an everyday object a new life!
