Beast of Burden

This is a recent addition to my series “Black Shapes and Textures”, which consist of digital and traditional¬†paintings.
I took a digital photograph of a wall clock and placed it in the software Photoshop,and using the Threshold filter converted it to a black image. I placed this black image of the wall clock over a digital photograph that I took of a painters drop cloth which had paint splatters on it. Using a Photoshop brush I added color to the clock numbers.
More paintings from my series Black Shapes and Textures, can be viewed on my website studiodyess.com

This is a continuation of my previous post showing covers of vinyl albums ,most of which my father,a radio engineer, brought home from radio station WTMV,after these albums were discarded. Stamped on the back of some of these albums is, not for sale. Most are from the 1950’s and 1960’s. I chose to show the albums which interest me for their graphic design, illustrations, and paintings.
