Painting - Photograph.painting
The name of this painting is Color Conception. I see the birth of all colors here. An orange dream of all that can be dispersed out into a full spectrum of imagination and altered reality. All of the colors of the rainbow are here on vivid display.
I LOVE color. I feel it deep into my very being. I can not even begin to place into words the pure joy that envelops me when I look at a painting like this. I look for the subtle hints of other stories contained within the bright mass of the whole. Orange and yellow are dominant but they are not the main image. Without the cooling power of the blues and purples there would be overwhelming chaos. The colors work together to excite and soothe the mind not just take it over in intense domination.
This painting started out as a picture of handblown glass created by Garth Mudge of Glassworks in Winthrop Wa. Glassworks is located downtown in the beautiful Methow Valley in Okanogan County.
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. I am retaining as much of the original textures as possible. I am using only the colors that originated in the picture when it was a photograph. I am using these colors as a starting point for the picture. Then I choose which textures to use to complement the colors. Then I start painting and 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.
