After a two-day photo trip to Point Lobos and Big Sur, we stopped for lunch at Nepenthe, a delightful restaurant perched high on the cliffs above the ocean. There had been a storm out over the water and as it diminished, the clouds created a magical combination of shadows and reflections.
The creative process is unique, all done by hand. An archival pigment print on fine-art Somerset Velvet paper is affixed to board and sealed with a clear-coat for UV protection. No glass is needed, and the image is float mounted in a hardwood maple frame. The result is striking color, clarity and an uncanny three-dimensionality.
Most of my work is drawn from nature, but I enjoy creating images whose origins may not be readily clear. This kind of abstract view often leads to artworks that are intriguing, but also a bit mysterious. Always, the interaction is intended to be peaceful and relaxing.
