The Ghosts Of Capitol Hill
Photograph - Montage Photography
This is a mixed media that incorporates photography, painting and collage. First the photos were sized and cut and pasted on hot pressed WC paper. All photographs were taken by Ken L. Howard. Then the clouds, eagle Jackie Gleason and paul Newman from the 1962 film the "Hustler" were painted in oil. I rephotographed it using black and white medium format film and processed it on 12x16 matt paper mounted on 16x20 board. I used very diluted oil paints to lightly hand color the photograph and finished with two coats of clear gloss. This is a handcrafted artwork. No photo shopping was used to achieve the original piece.
