Joyful Sorrow
By Omaste Witkowski

We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world. ~Helen Keller

I see many emotions in this painting. Joy and Sorrow and everything in between. The range of emotion is played out in the colors and the shapes. I see sad faces and happy faces. I really enjoy the way that the colored emotions are strong in some places and weaker in others. Just as in life, things play out the way that they are meant to and we are along for the ride.

My take on life at this point is that you do your best, try to stay positive, and realize that not everything happens the way that I think it should. There are many mysteries yet to be unveiled and many paths not yet taken. Finding joy in the many small places each day is a constant challenge and reward at the same time.

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.
