Mixed Media - Digital Art, Mixed Media/photos/graphics
Inspired by the sunset on cactus flowers --and the original PHOTO of one of a bloomings taken during a visit to Santa Fe, New Mexico-- this image was first a watercolor that was built on a neurographic sketch.
The image you see here was then created as a digital renedering here in my studio in Asheville, NC. as a contemporary digital rendering. I have the sense that it could work well to bring a heartbeat of color to a special spot-- a s a design your bring into textile art or wall décor.
It follows my thread of interest in living things and nature that runs through what I paint on canvas, or on paper, or in a mixed media format.
SYMBOLISM:: The visual story emphasizes The Fraught Process of Selection we each face every day.

Method:You may recognize influences- from Post-Painterly Abstraction, to Abstract Expressionist, to Fauvism and the work of artists such as Henri Matisse. In each case, I create from what is around me, or from an inner landscape arrived on a journey with an insistent muse and a photo hunt. I translate the photo into digital format, reaching out for the story or metaphor with digital manipulation to create the narrative as texture, patterns, repetition, and "fauve-wave" bits meet- sometimes even becoming a collage.
In this paintography piece, the juxtaposition of color with changing light symbolizes positive change through envisioning different perspectives. Each of the images in this series bases its tale on the concept of Change with Compassion.
*This artwork is available in a variety of framed and unframed gallery-quality prints, home décor items such soft and durable duvet covers, fabric shower curtains, and throw pillows as well as greeting cards and weekender totes.
