Over the last six months, I have returned to an art project that has held my interest over my entire art career. In college, had to opportunity to play with image transfer, a process that used a variety of techniques to transfer printed pages on to paper. I was charmed by the possibilities of re-purposing photographs but hindered by the limits of the technique. When Photoshop was a new program (mid 90s?), I began to play around with this concept anew and have over the years, developed several methods of painting on photographs in the digital realm.
So my newest concept is to take my art into the field. I am working toward a debut date of December 15, to coincide with an artist showcase in which I am participating. By then, I will have worked out the bugs of having proper lighting and a good workflow to be able to make custom portraits while you watch.
