Photography: Digital, Color, Manipulated, Paper on Paper, Canvas.
Story: On “The Arbor Bridge” wasn’t where I wanted to stand - to take a photograph of what a I saw. . . . The sun was too hot.
So, I found a hole below, near where the water cooled the air.
Later, when I put the photo into my computer – I remembered that what I see isn’t always what I prefer.
I painted over the photograph to share what one can see . . . when the rough edges are imagined away.

Process: Each photo taken is cropped and toned for a foundation that I think will allow many versions of it to be created from it. Naturally, the original is saved in case I decide to crop and tone a different way for an altogether different approach.
Upon determining a base look, I then experiment with 20 to 60 versions of it - changing colors, applying filters, embedding additional images, digitally painting them and transforming them from a recognizable photograph into an altogether new work.
