Created in 2021Experimentation is the mother of invention, or so the saying goes. Most of my work evolves from an insatiable appetite to challenge myself to create something new and different. Ruled and driven by instinct, which pushes me to experiment.A good example would be Autumn Blaze, which started as a photograph and later morphed into something entirely different. Sometimes I use a scanner to bring in my drawings done in pastel and colored pencils. Once in Adobe PS, I then created layers building up the collage. Painting with digital brushes is very satisfying in that it brings back the joy I found in painting. Working with digital elements gives one the ability to save, experiment, and go back. Autumn Blaze is part of a series of five. Each oner addresses the theme of Autumn using the colors of the Fall.
