VIEW IN MY ROOM
My work for the past 40 years has been inspired by my love of nature and the ocean. I shot this turtle back in 2007 on the West Shore of Oahu in a small bay where turtle like to hang out by a vertical reef wall about 25 feet deep. Turtles are the favorite food of Tiger Sharks which frequent the area to feed on them. I output the image and then painted it using a digital airbrush and other photo art techniques. I shoot my images on both 35mm slide film and digitally in stills and video. I output the original to either canvas or aluminum and add acrylic paint at that time. Acrylic paint is added to some of my pieces to highlight certain areas. This particular painting does not have the acrylic paint added. This particular piece was finished in 2012 and the original has been printed to aluminum.
