Spirits And Roses
Painting - Digital Photographs
I painted Elvis into the upper right hand corner and a rose into the lower right. Across the rest is thorns and various flying spirits.
This is 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. I am exploring hand blown glass at a macro level in the hopes of creating fine art from very small pieces of glass. In this particular photograph I have gone in by hand and painted over the original image.
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. Creating art from light or art from glass art? Either way I see creating art from life and from existing art.
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.
