Drink as I may it won’t wash away the stain that’s you that’s in me
Your essence embeds just as wine flows blood red to cover my lost clarity
A glass full of tears, one less Musketeer, “one for all” now a shadowy cry
So here I’ll repose, vines circling my nose, as life ferments ere my eye
- R Turnbow

Canon 7D, ISO-200, 50mm, f/1.8, 1/8 sec

Self portrait accentuated with various imagery all layered in Photoshop CS6. The bottles and grape bunches are 3D rendered. Final coloring in Photoshop Lightroom.

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.

    Randy, I gotta say when you nail it, it`s a total WOW !!
    Thanks for blowing my mind this dreary Brussels AM… think I might just pop open a bottle of Pommerol tonite and have another look at this to cheer me up :-)
    Definite fave from me dude !!

  • Wow, BB, thanks for the enthusiastic reply and the fave. The photo was taken in a hotel room over my birthday celebration last weekend. I was messing around with lighting and such. I also took a photo of a couple of wine glasses in the room, then yesterday this idea hit and took on a life of it’s own. Anyway, thanks again, appreciate the support and enjoy the red!
