Bumbly Bee No. 2

Bumbly Bee No. 2

This is a companion piece to my "Bumbly Bee" print - another photo from the same day, the same flower, and possibly even the same bee. The digital effects I applied remind me of the hot summer day and buzzing sound of the bee as it worked.

Bumbly Bee

This busy pollinator was very industriously working on a purple wild onion blossom, and obliged me by staying still long enough to take this. And then I decided to see what he would look like as a digital painting: abstract bumble bee!

Angels of Rome No. 1 - Cross

This print is created from a photo taken when I lived briefly in Rome years ago. The aged, weathered look of this digital painting seemed very appropriate to the statues of the Ponte Sant' Angelo on the Tiber, which are dedicated to the Passion.

Hollyhocks, After O'Keefe

Hollyhocks, After O'Keefe

When I think of hollyhocks - which I love - I think of proper English gardens and humble but elegant beauty. In this work, I added a touch of the flow and wildness of Georgia O'Keefe's style to this well-behaved flower, to create something a little different. Still elegant, but modern as well.

Autumn Leaves by Train Trestle

This piece shows the same old trestle as in an earlier work ("Under the Train Trestle"), but at a different angle and in another season. Then I painted it digitally with selected colours to give it a more surreal look - an imaginary landscape with a story of its own.
