Another photo from a series I took at an old mining, ghost town east of Phoenix at the base of the Superstition Mountains.
This old machine was under an exposed part of an old building but the afternoon sun found it and brought the colors to life.
In it's life it probably saw a lot of use but now sits neglected in the desert.
I've always been interested in art but had done little more than sketch all my life...and even then I drew mostly just cartoony, line drawings.
A few years ago, I decided to take a number of computer art courses at a nearby community college. I met an artist in one of those classes who became a friend and he encouraged me to look into Fine Art classes at the same school.
It turns out they have a great Fine Art program teaching traditional techniques of color theory, design, drawing, life drawing/anatomy, oil painting, photography and more.
I've learned so much (knowing I still have a LOT to learn) and after having nearly completed a Fine Art and Digital Illustration degree I now have a little more confidence to begin to present...
