DCF 1.0

This is a photograph that I took of a plastic colander. A simple definition of a colander is “a perforated  bowl used to strain off liquid from food” I see it as an object that has windows that lets light come through it that creates an interesting visual image. .The title of this photo is Kitchen Shapes #4a. It is one of a series of photographs that I have taken of objects found in my kitchen. I have titled this series “Kitchen Shapes”. I placed the colander in front of the kitchen window to let the subshine come through the square shapes.I liked the shadow and shapes in this photo.

Real Cowboy

“Real Cowboy” digital painting by John Foster Dyess

This digital painting is based on a photograph that I took of a cowboy re-enactor at the Stockyards in Fort Worth ,Texas. I placed the photograph in the software Photoshop and using various brushes painted over the photograph.There was an automobile on the street that I removed. I painted over the entire photograph with Photoshop brushes.
I made a 24″ x 30″ photo- print of this image and drew over it with pastel pencils.

Fort Worth Longhorn Steer

My wife Carolyn and I went to Fort Worth ,Texas in April of 2008 to visit friends and while we were taking a tour of the city and the well known Stock Yards, I took numerous photographs of our varied surroundings ,fascinated with street scenes and the city’s architecture.  As I viewed the images on my computer monitor after I returned home,I became aware of details ,subtleties ,colors and shapes I hadn’t particularly noticed through the viewfinder. I began a body of work I have titled “A Visiting Artists View of Fort Worth”.

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.
