Very Interesting!
On the road this past week I was playing with taking photo's of parts of things, or interesting texture,or odd subjects. These two photo's are part of that day. It was a rainy dark day and some of the photos were taken through a rain streaked window shield. I decided to play with the color and ...

Thank you Morean Art Center for the wonderful classes you offer!
Starting an art class is alway invigorating for me. New ideas, mingling with other artists, and possibilities that are all anew!!! All my grown life when I could sign up for a class I would. I love learning and growing. Of course at times it is scary and a blank page stares out at you just ...

WOMEN ARTISTS
I have compiled a partial list of women in art. I have included women from Western, Asian, and Middle Art. As we go along I will add more women to this list. What one finds in art is that an artist can be important at one time and lose favor at another. Who will eventually stand for time is yet ...

Thank you for the post!
 
Our #SouthernGothic project may have come to an end but how did it all begin? With "The Arrival" by +Nathan Mark Phillips, of course.
You have no doubt seen our meme series for Southern Gothic featuring the incredible artwork by Nathan Mark Philips. If you have read the collection, you have seen the splendor of these works in full. Each piece of art was specifically created for each piece of writing. All except one.

One of the special things about art is you are never too young or to old to be an artist and do art. Maryann is a fellow student and friend of mine in art class. She is my role model for an active 80 year old! We take pottery together at a wonderful city recreation program offered by the city of ...

Introduction

“an artist is a man who digests his own subjective impressions and knows how to find a general objective meaning in them, and how to express them in a convincing form”— Maxim Gorky as quoted in Design as Art by Bruno Munari

Creating digital collage came later in life for me: it is a new venture that evolved from my love of photography and mastery of Photoshop.  What I express through my art, however, goes further back to my Tennessee roots; of growing up in a small Southern town that was saturated with religion and the power of “church.”  It includes my own spiritual journey of self-discovery, alienation and contentment.  Through my study of religion, theology and psychology I am drawn toward the unconscious, universal truths, fear, courage, hope, contrast, hypocrisy, failures and dreams.   My process of creating is intuitive, open and responsive to the art.  It begins with an element, then two and on until the interaction between the elements of the work begins to reveal a story.  It is a creative partnership between the art and myself.  The art becomes the story that interacts with me and with the viewer.

I create my art exclusively in Photoshop.  My elements are from stock photography, my own photographs or those of my grandfather, who was an avid amateur photographer, or other public domain images from the Internet.   At the beginning of the process I review images until one “grabs me” and I continue the process until a rough example of the work begins to appear and I know the elements are in the right place.   My process then moves into more detail work until the art is complete.  At that point I experience joy and great satisfaction.

Thank you for looking at my Art.  It is my hope that it will say something to you.
