I've been getting a few new images worked up from my extensive catalogue of images. I'll try to be a bit more diligent this year about posting work, but no promises. This one has travelled a fair distance from the original reference photo of one of the swans at the local zoo. I view my photos as the raw material for new works, rather than an end in themselves. I do love creating in Photoshop.

Contrary to appearances, I do actually generate new digital/photo images on a fairly regular basis---I just forget to post them anywhere that they can be seen. I've been in tree mode in the past few months, and this is one of the end results.

Another horse one---

After not having done a lot of horse image work for a while, I'm on a bit of a roll these days. Here's today's effort, featuring my gelding Alpac, who also starred in the previous post on this blog. I can't ride currently, so it's nice to spend time with him in my artwork.

I spent some time yesterday revisiting an older image of my gelding, Alpac in thoughtful mode. Here is one of the end results.

Ghost Elevator

Here's a newly assembled photomontage, combining one of the many good sunset shots I've gathered over the past few months with one of my grain elevator images. This is part of an ongoing series of "ghost elevators" from my prairie heritage series of images.

By the River

I have a great love of trees, branches, roots and bark. At this time of year my tree shots are mostly about texture and shape, there being no leaves around Saskatchewan in January, but I worked up this image from a summer shot just so I can remember it won't be winter forever.

 This is is a photo that has been reworked/reimagined in Photoshop. For my art images, the initial photograph is just a starting point. I don't usually know where I'm going when I set out, but I do know when I get there.

The Green Spider

I have a lot of nice flower photos, but being the way I am, I always feel the need to go a step or two farther with them. I'm happy with the way this one turned out, and will likely pursue this concept further when the time is right. The flower is a peony (one of my favourite flowers to photograph and to have in the garden) from the back yard. If you look at the lower middle you will see a little green spider hanging on to one of the petals. I never notice these little fellows when I am shooting, but they are included somewhere in a lot of my flower photos, as I come to realize only when looking at them on the computer.
