Fire & Ice
Week 2 – Fire & Ice


Layered Snow Trees on top of Week One’s Fire.This is a corrected version of last week’s image, though.  I tried to diminish the banding in the first one.  Tweaked Master Opacity slides.  Heightened contrast and brightness.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

      1. Ive come back to this again and have noticed your comment about textile use. I can definitely see this as a fabric design. Would be very versatile!
        Do you design fabric? I did a design brief, creating my own piece and loved doing it – would love to do more and do hope to.. and all of this experimenting definitely helps 😃😃


  1. I really like the image of the fire, it makes me feel warm and cozy. The juxtaposition of the snow trees is interesting, I’m glad you are experimenting and trying new things. 😀


  2. I may be totally off base here, I see an artistic interpretation of an elephant as the two merge together and I really like it. Love the juxtaposition and such an interesting effect.
