Painting - Digital Photographs
I see planets colliding in a cosmic collision. Smashing into each other, they are torn apart by forces beyond their control. Destruction and explosions ensue.
What will become of all the pieces. They will float into an uncertain future as no one is sure the certainty of these things. Watch out for debris and impact it won't be easily avoidable but it will cause a certain end for the unwary.
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.
