OLD TEX
 Out some skinny little road somewhere close to Spring Mountain Ohio we stopped and asked a local if he knew of any old abandoned houses or barns etc, explaining we liked to photograph places like that. He said he couldn't think of any place like that but.... if I wanted to get a picture of something noteworthy I ought to go look at his Longhorns. "They're just down the road a little ways on the left".... I think he was right.

Hello my name is Jack and I'm an artaholic... Season's greetings to everyone. It's been along time since I have written anything here and a lot has been going on with me since I last was here. I am still doing photography and digital graphic design but I went back to painting more and using the camera less.  I have been staying pretty busy. I joined the local art guild here in my home county it's called the Coshocton County Artist Collective, that has been a good thing for me as it has helped to prompt me to do things again. I started drawing & painting again as well as getting out and doing a little more photography. I met new friends and was invited to join as a partner in a small studio and gallery in a neighboring town. I also started a Facebook page, Like Painting With Light, in case anybody wants to check it out. This has kept me a little busier than what I was used too, but I'm having lots of fun. I'm also selling some art work both photography and painting.
Staying busy with both mediums has been great. Back in 2009 I went to an art show at the Wexner Center for The Arts in Columbus Ohio. The show was the work of an artist whose name I cant recall. This guy besides painting raised and trained German Shorthaired Pointers and used them in his photography in advertising campaigns back in the 90s. I wish I could remember his name but if anyone knows who I am talking about please comment.
While I liked his dogs and they were some what famous that wasn't the most memorable part of the exhibit for me. The artist had a small series of canvases that he had attached a snap shot or a series of snapshots too and then extended the photograph out with paint. I believe he used oil paint. So what the finished product looked like was an oil painting with a photograph embedded somewhere inside it. The idea stuck in my mind and a few weeks ago I decided to try it using some of my photography. When a photographer combines two or more photos  to make one unique image it is called a composite photograph. I have been searching for what to call this technique but haven't seen anyone else doing it. So until a better suggestion comes around I'm going to call it Composite Painting, sort of a hybrid photograph and painting combination. I'm going to post a couple on here and see what kind of feedback I get. Thanks... and Happy Holidays!
