When you look at a tree, you only see one side unless you walk around, but then it’s hard to remember what you saw. Here you see a true surround view, a panograph, made from a dozen photographs, seamlessly painted together. Note the small detail that repeats at each end of the image, thus the 370° in the title.
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 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 peaceful and relaxing, but also a bit mysterious.
