The images in this website are all original photographs I have taken in over 35 years in Colorado. I am now branching out into what is called photo-art, taking the original file and transforming through digital tools into an image created rather than just rendered; in other words, art. A photograph is just that – an accurate rendering of a natural scene. Filters can be added, but that does not change the fundamental elements of the scene. Art does. When you look at a scene and paint, it is not accurate in the photographic sense; the paint is essentially interpretive – brush strokes, not pixels or film grains recording the actual light, color , and definition.
My recent efforts in this direction can be seen on my other website watercolorcolorado,com and on my Instagram feed coloradoscenics. My Instagram posts veer into the abstract and new art – unlike anything I have seen anywhere else. I have re-invented myself as an artist and am enjoying myself more than ever.
