M Y A R T — When I'm done with a new piece of art, I shoot photos of them, usually outside for the best light. I color correct the images so they best represent the originals and post them on my Flickr album. While they're certainly representative of my work in terms of color, layout and subject matter, they never really convey the details that are in each piece. Working on wood allows me to add texture into the pieces, and the fact that I sand them and tend to 'erase' parts of them and allow the wood's flaws and knots to show through etc, is pretty much lost when I photograph the entire piece. Today I decided to place some finished pieces on my scanner and show as many of the details as possible. Though these scans are just small sections of larger pieces, the point was to show the minute details in my pieces, and I'm happy with the way I was able to do so.
These pieces use paint, paper, gold leaf, silver foil, lead pencil, polyurethanes and in some cases metallic or mother-of-pearl glazes and even dried leaves. They're created on wood of various types, ie new pine boards, plywood, antique chestnut, vintage clapboards, and any other wood I can lay my hands on, lol.. Please click on each image to see all the juicy details! : )
