Art Description

New Media: Digital and Photo on Paper.

I took this photograph of a model floating on top of water and then later painted upon it to make it appear as though she were bursting through colorful clouds. I always feel like a kid in a candy store when I later review all the photographs I took during a water photo session. Oftentimes a scenario (such as "someone bursting through clouds") will jump out at me when I examine the photos for the first time. It lights up my imagination and makes me eager to get out my conductive paintbrushes and styluses.

I choose to do underwater (and surface water) photography of people because I am physically disabled and do not stand or walk well for very long on land. However, I am able to get around quite well in the low gravity environment of water. I do enjoy the oftentimes surreal effects water has on my photographic subjects. I find that the play of light as it dances upon and through water also adds a loveliness that can be hard to replicate any other way.
