Repainting Old Artworks
1. Pink Flamingo with Yellow Roses: This started out as 3 separate photos, one shot in the Galapagos, on in my garden and another who knows where (Berkeley Botanical Garden?). These were composited and printed on the exceptional paper Kozo Dbl Layer and glued on a cradled board 8x10. I just painted over it with gouache and acrylic. I like it better now.
2. In March 2011 I shot a brick pattern in Seattle that I later printed on fabric and glued onto a 8x10 board. Finally got around to painting it with gouache, acrylic and enamel.
3. I took a photo from the top of Mt. Tamalpais during a photography class in 2016 at dusk and printed it out on quality paper 13x19. Kind of boring! I just painted in a large crow landing with some other gouache highlights.
