Great work! What textures did you use? They are fabulous!
Thank you very much Darlene! I usually make my own textures first. I can send you some if you like on bubblemail.
Deborah, this is masterful layer work. Your treatment of the floorboards are conventional enough… but you’ve taken the unusual step of treating the frog’s texture in a way that makes him contrast not only artistically with the wood… but organically. Both ARE organic, but the frog is alive. As I sit here letting myself get absorbed, for me you’ve somehow managed to make this about life and death. Also as regards the fly. I know where the fly is.I love how your work draws me in and shows me stuff that’s not there until I look longer than just a glance. From this moment on, I promise never to only glance at your stuff. I know now there’s always a universe under the surface.And yeah, your framing and tonal balance are sublime.Amazing art.
Love the comment billy!!! When I make my book on art I need you to narrate it LOL.
In fact, this frog was one that Jeff ,(laughing bones), found petrified. I saw it on his dashboard of his car, when we went out to do a photoshoot I snapped a pic of it while he wasn’t looking LOL. You are correct about the life and death and this is my second artwork with using the frog and the insect. These images help me when I lose someone in death and remind me how fast they can be gone out of our lives.
Brilliant! Love every bit of this!Pxx
Thank you very much Polly for your wonderful comment!
wonderfully creative … love this deborah
Thank you so very much!
I dunno what’s cooler… Jeff driving around with a petrified frog on his dash, or you doing its portrait ? There’s a definite bond there Deb.Thanks for sharing that :-))
Now that you put it that way, I need to step back and ponder on that some more! I will get back to you on that! ha ha ha,
