**note on the above, I took this photo at night with artificial light. I have found that natural light and no flash capture my art the best. If you take photos of your own art you should try this: find a spot in your yard where you get no shadows, maybe shaded. Stand over your art and take the photo from above. You can always crop later. When I do this I never have to do any light adjusting in photoshop. The above is really dull compared to the real image. darn.
These were also all made using black gesso as the base. I tried to leave outlines around everything with the black. It was hard to cover the black gesso, but I really like the outlines it leaves behind when you leave a gutter around the positive spaces.
I'm off to Alabama for a few days. It's Spring Break for the kiddos. We usually travel as a family during this week, but unfortunately the legislative session is running long this year, and Billy has to stay behind. Total bummer, but proud of what he's accomplished this session. With so many changes at the national level, the trickle affect for the states is taking it's toll on our state government. But he stands strong on what is right for the people he represents.
