RECENT WORKS - February 2015

A continued exploration of soft focus photos combined with the painting app Brushstroke. A number of these recent works are pure abstract, and I am thinking of following this line exclusively for the present, but it is hard for me to give up the recognizable image. :-o

Some new images from the "Distillation +"group. They were shot on a trip to Mt. Hood Community Collage for a show reception that I had some of my ICM photographs in. In addition to the normal subject matter, I often look for colors and forms that will later lend themselves to abstract digital paintings. I have found that the soft focus combined with the Brushstroke app on my iPad works very well, and think there is a lot of potential for exploration.

I have been working on a series of iPhoto images called the Distillation Series, and have recently started to add the iPad app called Brushrokes to the mix. These are a few of the more recent digital paintings to come out of the experiment. It is a pretty simple change, but I am liking the results.
