Orange and Brown Leaves

Change is good! Sometimes I like to experiment,try new ways of seeing and working, just to have some fun and not worry about pleasing anyone but myself. I will be presenting for a few days recent work created using a digital camera and computer software. As with all my work this style was a process and just didn’t “happen” but took many steps. Enjoy or question or ignore this work. I had fun creating this style.

    HI John,
    Will you comment on the use of computers in art? There are many who claim that computer manipulation is a cheat or not real art. Since you have embraced technology as another tool for art creation, I’d like to hear your thoughts on the subject. I especially appreciate the colors in the work, I take many photographs in the fall and find the many shades fascinating and most pleasing. In the work presented here the colors are pulled from the original to really make a strong statement.

      I think using technology is not a cheat and not to use technology is senseless. I will talk about my use of technology in a few weeks and the fact that the “old masters ” used mirrors and lenses as tools to create their drawings and paintings. Thanks for the comment Devoree. This is the kind of comment I like to read.
