Art Is a window to another world and the artist creates that vision. Some people work in the garden, I invent it. Utilizing assorted cameras to capture my surroundings I then collage pieces of photos into a scene using photoshop tools as my brush. Taking an ‘as is’ photograph does not resonate with me. I must add texture, color, or my own parts. As an oil painter I incorporate that sensitivity into my digital work.
I will explore a particular theme, then move on. If It starts to become too familiar I try another direction. Nature always touches me. A day on the Hudson River may be bright in color but I will key it down to become a moody somber day. Or approaching Ireland’s shoreline the shapes inspire rather bright colors as opposed to the actual dull lanscape I see.
