Finding the Picture with Brooks Jensen

Finding the Essence

For me, finding the picture is often a matter of finding the essence and simply eliminating as much of the distraction as I can. Perhaps that's why I lean to minimalist compositions. Sometimes there is a story to be told (the first image does a better job of that), but more often for me, with my artwork it is more important to capture the experiential moment. Here is the scene -- a monk invited us in for tea.

Here is my image distilled to the experiential moment.
