New York Bridge oil on canvas

This painting “New York City Bridge “is based on a photograph that I took while visiting New York City. It started with the photo that I placed in Photoshop and then I made a high contrast black and white image.  I placed this image over a texture layer that I created using a photo of a painters drop cloth. I had the digital image printed on a canvas wrap print and painted over this print with oil, and enamel paint. The size is 24″ high x 30” wide and is in a wood frame. It is for sale for $1200.00

This painting was accepted in a juried show at Art St.Louis. This exhibit it will be hanging in is called “Maturity and Its Muse: Celebrating Artistic Experience”The show opens on April 14-May 24, 2018. Free reception Saturday, April 21,2018, 5-7 pm.
I have created a series in this style of art.

Los Logos parade scene2

Los logos parade drawing by John Foster Dyess

Several years ago I visited with my wife and friends Guanajuato ,Mexico and San Miguel de Allende. While visiting San Miguel de Allende our group watched a Los logos parade and I took digital photos of this parade. When we returned to St.Louis I viewed these photos of the parade and created black line and color drawings from some of these photos. Using reference photos I had taken of these two Mexican cities I created at least 15 drawings and paintings. This is the second scene of the Los logos parade I have drawn.
I wanted to focus on and enhance the expressions of the viewers and the participant in the parade.I  enjoyed drawing the costumes of the parade participants.
The drawing is 12.25″ wide x 10.50 high painted, black ink and watercolor on bond paper.

January 16,2012

I created this painting “January 16,2012 today, for no other reason than to enjoy the process of creating visual art. There is no meaning to it except to combine a digital photograph of distressed type and a color texture image that I created.
