Mill BloomsMill Blooms

 Val and Dusty Scott at DustyBlues affirm our continuing transformation of awareness in the revolution and enhancement of our growth while furthering essential and gratifying involvement, and cultivating peace and happiness with our persistent exploration and observation.

We are constantly striving to develop and bring forth our unique interpretations of our visions to convey life’s gestures, tones, texture, harmony of colors, geometric patterns, and so much more that appears perfectly aesthetic in our mind’s eye. Many times these expressions are so fleeting and sublime that once gone, never reappear in the same manner again. Other moments have the special capacity to endure over intervals as a continuum of cultural forms and experience.

In our work we tell stories of our intimate bond with the folks and the many places where we have developed an affinity with the earth. We endeavor to depict these intimate moments with cherished impressions inherent in such natural allure. We seek to impart the devotion and sense of obligation that invigorates us as we reflect on those magical moments that transform each of our spirits.

We capture these images as a means to convey this aesthetic that cannot be described otherwise, and by using the perceptible intrinsic and essential beauty as expressive allegories, forging images of ambience and conditions that individually provide the essential spirit of our beings.
