A little Triptych I did over the weekend from photos I took on our trip.
Just an additional note. If you want to link to my Facebook page let me know or Instagram. Just follow links on the words above.
I am practicing the art of pin-up’s from the 40-60’s. It is more to create a base to have in my portfolio. This would allow for people to see what is possible with a normal portrait photo given some more room to play. We need to explore and play – make things and life interesting.
My latest pin-up painting from a stock photo..
This is the 3rd of 5 pin-up’s I am planning to paint. The first 2 were just faces and I am building on this with more and more detail.
It is a fun project. Will show you the last 2 once I have them sorted.
We saw this beautiful leopard back in 2015 and I just had to do something with this. I created this for your enjoyment of a beautiful, playful female leopard. Make no mistake, she was just as dangerous and it would have been silly to take her up on her offer.
I thought one of the ways to enhance the blog in future was to not only give you an image or 5, but also speak more toward my feelings and the reasons for the work.
I will begin with saying that the whole family has the flu. This already had put me on this path of wanting to create an image with that theme. What led me to use the birds was actually very sad. The bird being held softly in her hands is in fact a swallow that was killed by a vehicle and I found it on my morning walk.
I photographed it with flowers and tar (maybe a future image), but being so fond of swallows since I can remember my overwhelming sadness for this loss and wish for it to fly again crept into this design and eventual composite. I used the Tern image to link the river and the ocean in the background with the model.
Hope this post in interesting enough that you would like to see more.
