color, texture – bumps, bends and growth
Hillside Spin 2 – digital painting – Dan Beck 2007
Thought I would revisit this piece. When I wrote about it last week, all I discussed was the new technique and how much fun or too much fun I had.
But in truth, I think the digital painting is quite pleasing. It is not that representative of my work in general, but so what. I like the playfulness. I like the bumps and bends my eye takes looking at it.
The color I was able to impart is also fun to look out – there is tremendous texture and this was intended to be a double print – so to get a better sense of what it would look like printed – I captured a section at the right size.
Art is always about process and growth -
I used to always say “the more we live the more we die” – an odd paradox, but true. Today I think of youth and growth and that perhaps we are not dying as long as we are growing.
- Houses on the Hillside – for some reason, the above painting keeps making me think of this one – a drive by moment on the 101 near San Jose – art prints are set up for purchase for this piece
- Exhibit Helps the Creative Growth Process – not a current exhibit, but article shows how art affects both the artist and the viewer – helping us to see ourselves on many levels
