In my continuing escapade to explore new avenues of creative framing for prints of my images, I have recently (while at home healing from a shoulder injury) picked up a paintbrush and have begun experimenting with textural background painting.
I have two friends to whom I need to give my humble thanks for their creative inspiration:
for the concept of extending the boundaries of some of his own photography using painted media.
for the magnificent antiquity of her textural mixed-media images.
Image used for this piece:
Work in progress:
Media used: old window frame, metal window latch, 2 drill bits, photograph printed on Hahnemühle fine art paper;
Extended textural background painted on watercolor paper, using color-tinted acrylic gel.
Outer dimensions (including "feet"): 14" W x 18" H; or 35.5 x 45.75 cm.
