Painting - Vintage Photograph, Hand-painted
This image is part of an exciting new body of artworks that I began in 2013. These tranquil scenes began as vintage, hand-painted photographs taken around 1900. The subject matter is reminiscent of English country gardens and private spaces where an individual might go to spend many quiet hours pondering life's mysteries and rejuvenating ones soul. I've digitally reworked these public domain images by cleaning them up, improving their dynamic range, cropping them, altering various elements, modifying colours and abstracting them with filters. My goal is to create works that are lush with colour and rich with texture: works that surpass their photographic origins to become something more painterly.
