Artist's Description

So many layers
in this minute
when I cannot even
separate lines
an old boiler
without a pot
to…well….in
part of a half-remembered
car once so much
a part of life
jump in and go
to pick up the kid
or a quart of milk
so much rust
and wear
where have the years gone?
or are they gone
at all?
Are they really
here at once
blended into this chair
where I sit
unable to cut
one line from
the next?
all in all
it’s all
the same
amen
amen

Another in a series of digital works based on multiple abstract shots taken of old farm equipment with my Nikon D80. Layers are added one at a time and blended using multiply, overlay, exclusion, or other options.I keep adding more pictures until it looks right. After flattening the layers, I sometimes copy and replicate a section in another place, then blend it, too in the most effective way. It is all done in my usual seat-of-the-pants experimental style.
