Painting - Paintings To Photo-art, Digital Mixed Media
"LUNGTA THE WINDHORSE"
"Lungta the Windhorse " is a modern impressionist painting with Fauve references. Originally on canvas, it tells a story that invites you to create your own spin. I hope you will find a connection here - linger awhile, possibly start a conversation about the elements - spaces, lines, textures and rhythms that speak to you.

ABOUT: "Lungta Windhorse" began as a photo of a white horse running across the mountainside. After a pen-and ink sketch, it took shape as an acrylic on canvas, later to be photographed once more. At that point it evolved from a modern impressionist piece into mixed media, modern contemporary (new media) paintography. When I took a photo of the final iteration and subjected it to the whims of my muse-(and computer)- here in my studio in Asheville, North Carolina, the result was this digital rendering.
It continues a theme that runs through my work : Nature, metaphor, and the fraught process of selection we—each of us— face daily : The choice to look for pure possibility in what is around us.Good Energy.
** PLEASE NOTE:: You can create with this piece as a framed (or unframed) gallery-quality print for your living spaces...possibly a very cool soft and durable duvet covers, fabric shower curtains, and throw pillows for that pop of pizzazz would work for you? ...or surprise family and friends with unique greeting cards...or yourself with a weekender tote...
THE BACK-STORY: : I create visual narratives from what is around me- make sketches into canvas work, then take a photo creating a mixed media digital rendering such as what you see in this piece. I reach out for the story and metaphor in a visual narrative via texture, patterns, repetition that meet in a feeling of lyrical abstraction. These elements offer a sense of coming together - a collection of concepts and forms that take shape.
THEME AND SYMBOLISM:: In this paintography piece, the juxtaposition of color with changing light symbolizes positive change through envisioning different perspectives. Here is the story of longing for connection a tale of change with compassion. This is a theme that runs through what I paint on canvas, or on paper, or in a digital way.
METHOD:: Abstract –Expressionism-Narrative Digital Paintography with a Twist. Look for interpretations of outer/inner landscapes with a persistent focus on patterns and bold or unusual color. Photo and digital manipulation mostly NOT an accurate interpretation, seek to explore the essence of the subject. I move shapes, colors, forms, textures, layering and the overall gestalt to achieve an effect. Expect glimpses of reality from unusual perspectives. Image-making prompted by nature
