Reflections of a Carnation

My goal for this photograph was to take a simple (but beautiful) carnation and use it to make a dramatic image.

Then & Now: Shy Clown Video

This is a recent art video showing my Shy Clown artwork.  This video is the start of a new series I plan to do called Then & Now where I go back and find an old artwork from 5 to 10 years ago and completely redo it.  It’s something fun for me, and good practice.  And, hopefully it will be enjoyable for you to watch.

Enjoy this first video!

Shy Clown

It has been a while since I’ve posted one of my artworks, and this one may seem a bit familiar to anyone that has watched this blog over the year.  This is a digital painting portrait where I’ve recently added some updates.  I also have the black and white version without the clown make-up and hair ribbon.

This portrait was actually a redo of a painting I did about 8 years ago.  Sometimes I enjoy going back to old pictures and ideas and completely redoing them to see if I’m able to improve them.  I made a video showing the old version in comparison to this new one, and I’ll make sure to add that to a blog post later today.

Many Fruits

This fruit still life is bound to add some color to your kitchen walls. Yum!

There’s a bit of a funny story behind this picture.  I love watermelon.  I mean I LOVE watermelon.  So much so that I took a bite out of a piece of the watermelon without thinking as I was setting up this still life.  It made it into the picture as you can see the tiny bite mark on the watermelon piece on the right.  It tasted good!  I guess that’s one nice thing about doing food still life pictures; I get to eat the work.

Curious Kitten

It is my opinion that there aren’t that many things cuter than a kitten.

I had been taking photographs with my macro lens, and when I finished what I was working on I started taking pictures of my kitten when she actually slowed down from playing and gave me an opportunity to shoot her portrait.  The kitten was always on the move, so I didn’t even think about switching my lens.  I think the macro lens actually worked out pretty well for this shot.  I like the details of the nose, fur and her eye, but also like the shallow depth of field that gives this cat portrait a bit more of an artistic flavor.
