Painting - Digital Photographs
I see a magical fish tail. One of a kind and one that will be talked about in stories for centuries and generations. The person who tries to catch it will be taken on a wild ride through watery realms of magic and mystery.
This fish is as unattainable as Moby Dick and yet men and women alike are drawn to the challenge. Insanity is an end result that strikes most who attempt this impossible feat. If you dare then try but you might not live to regret your decision.
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.
