"MOUNTAINS RISING"
While I traditionally use my own photographs to create my collage works, the photos for this piece were (with the exception of the sky) all provided by Tom and Linda Kimbrell, who captured these magnificent images during some of their climbing adventures. The four primary photographs are of Karakoram Range, Pakistan, Fitzroy Massif, Argentina, Aconcagua, Argentina and the Alaska Range. The sky was a shot I captured when traveling to Antarctica several years ago… though the moon in the sky was taken from one of the Kimbrell’s images. This collage comprises twenty-three “cuttings” from the above photos, which were overlaid, repositioned, recolored, and then digitally painted using four different brush techniques.

"MARKETPLACE"
Photography / Photo Collage / Digital Painting

"MARKETPLACE"
In November of 2005 I had the amazing opportunity to travel in and around the area of Rajasthan, India; an adventure I’d longed for since childhood, when I found that my father had spent three years in India during World War II. To say that India is blessed with a wealth of photographic possibilities is a gross understatement. At every turn the images seemed to become more fascinating, vibrant, mystical. If I’d been shooting with a traditional camera, I would have bankrupted myself with developing film. Thankfully I had my digital Nikon…because I just couldn’t stop shooting.

MARKETPLACE, is a three-piece tryptic, consisting of “cuttings” from 104 photographs, out of the over 4,600 photos I took while in India. The collage actually has two more photos (making a total of 106 different photos used), which are the sky, a picture I snapped while in Antarctica (the Antarctic skies are amazing!), and "Chai," the cat on the overhang of the center panel, who belongs to the lovely folks who commissioned this piece. After selecting the photos I wanted to use, I then overlaid, repositioned, recolored, and then digitally painted each layer using a total of seven different brush techniques.
