creatively interpret events, views, and life
Irrigation Bend – digital painting / art prints – Dan Beck 2005
Being creative is not just about creating things.
In many cases, it is about creating meaning – or finding meaning – not exactly the same things – but either way about creatively interpreting the world.
Today this piece came up partly by clicking the roulette button(chance?) and partly by my being in the figures gallery. It was also displayed a year ago with the piece I wrote about earlier today.
I was surprised to see I had not written about this. It is a strong piece – it also was the first time I had really observed workers wet adjusting the irrigation spray.
Another important connection to this piece is the the last digital painting I did was called “Irrigation Man” and utilizes the same theme but in a more iconic fashion.
Nevertheless, I think it is the first time since the above piece I have painted anything resembling this theme.
The hills, the bend in the road, the stripes of color and texture, and the sky all conspire to make this a really wonderful piece – also much more enhanced when viewed large.
