This piece I entered into the Maine Biennial and was accepted. At that time I was really interested in the Neo-Expressionists and Bernard Langlais of Maine.
I have this software package Studio Artist. I really like it. Yesterday I thought I would create a new image using one of my old paintings. This was purely experimental, trying new techniques, etc. But what is going on in my mind right now is trying to feel legitimate as an artist using digital tools. I would like to print out on good paper and mount on a board applying encaustic. Somehow I feel that unless I use traditional materials it isn’t legitimate art. Yet what I find is that I can work quicker, make more changes, experiment more, use different sources of imagery at the same time in a computer environment. Anyway, below are the before and after using Studio Artist.
