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 is 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. Many gallery viewers think the green bits of moss were glued to the surface of the print.
The creative process is unique, all by hand. A twelve-color 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.
