Along Came A Spider
Painting - Digital Photographs
I see a spider and very trippy legs. Not sure how they will string a web with these legs but I bet it will be a psychadelic web that will catch all sorts of counterculture flys. The morning dew is offering a cool drink as this arachnid contemplates all of the work ahead. All work and no play will make this spider very bored. Once she gets going, watch out, you never know who will be snared in her creation.
This painting started as a photograph of a piece of glass artwork created by Garth Mudge of Glassworks in Winthrop, Wa. It was taken with a Macro lens and is a very small section of the overall object. The colors are vivid and alive due to the way that I am illuminating the glass art as I am taking the picture. In a way I am photographing the light as it passes through the object.
In this particular photograph I have gone in by hand and painted over the original image. Adding my own textures and visions to the shapes and colors I started with.
I have been a professional photographer for many years but it is only recently that I have been photographing glass at any level. It is such an exciting experience to discover these images. I almost feel like an archeologist as I explore a small hidden word and reveal the treasures within.
