My work is original. Many times I start with a photograph personally taken. I find that in general, sunrise is the most beautiful, colorful time to record the feelings and emotions of a beginning day. In this case, the photograph is used as a guide for an acrylic painting. Then photographed and printed on canvas or canvas paper. In some cases, the original painting is the finished product offered for sale - acrylic painting on canvas or canvas paper. Rarely, and only under special circumstances will I paint another original work.
In many cases, the artwork is originally painted onto canvas or canvas paper using acrylic paint, occurring in a moment of spontaneity and creative intelligence. These paintings usually resulting in an abstract or surreal modality.
In other cases the pre-finished or near finished product is then photographed and touched up, repainted in digital format, such as Photoshop or Corelle paint. Converted into a digital image file. It is stored and printed onto canvas. The photographic prints on canvas is then edited/revised with acrylic paint to maintain originality-each product is different.
Most of my products are closed ended productions, meaning there will be a limit of 30 pieces produced and the product is closed for production. Each piece of artwork is numbered consecutively, such as number two of 30.
The size of my artwork may differ from, for example, 11 x 14 or 16 x 20 within the same product offered. In addition, the depth of the canvas varies from the standard three-quarter wrench to the gallery wrapped 1 1/2 inch. The prospective buyer has various options to choose from-size, color, shading, minor changes in appearance of the original work.
