Painting - Oil On Canvas
Originally this was a photograph of my cat and my dog (best friends in real life and unfortunately the dog has passed since). In fact when my dog died, my cat did not find her place and peace for a week. We thought we were going to loose her too because she was so upset! She walked from from to room looking for her and since the cat spends a lot of time outdoors, we had a real hard time getting her back into the house at night (we have lots of coyotes around here) and when she finally came in, she looked like she went through hell: fur standing up, fleas, she was dirty.. she was a huge mess. It took her a week to return to normal. But now she is not friendly with any dog--which may be a good thing.
In any case, I hand painted the photo, removing the background, using computer software in oil - impasto equivalent-this was one of my first paintings; since then I have created a nicer one.
Digitally painted pictures printed on canvas have the nicest effects. Since I was a painter in oil and other mediums like tempera for 30 years, I understand what an oil paint should look like and I those skills are added to my digital paintings.
Digital paintings have many advantages over paintings that were originally painted on canvas or paper and then photographed and posted for sale as print. The most important of these advantages of digital over "real" is that since digital was created digitally, it will look printed on canvas or paper exactly as you see it on the monitor and not flat!
It is a frequent complaint of buyers after purchasing a print of a photograph of an oil or acrylic paint on canvas, since on your monitor you see the digitally photographed version of that oil or acrylic paint and the textures are flat shadows and not digital shadows--there is a difference.
Digital photography of highly textured items like oil or acrylic paint removes all textures and makes them appear flat. You don't get this problem with digital art. You get exactly what you see! It is also green art--meaning it uses nontoxic materials and doesn't kill trees in the making!
