Images are everywhere, this one from the shallows beneath a dock on Santa Cruz Island in California. A sunny and breezy day, a riot of reflections and refractions in the water. Sky, clouds, sun, sand and shadows all sculpted by the wind.
The creative process is unique, all done by hand. An archival pigment print on Somerset Velvet fine-art 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 intriguing, but also a bit mysterious. Always, the interaction is intended to be peaceful and relaxing.
