Because there was a lot of snow, my daughter and I visited Joshua Tree National Park at the end of December 2019. I have visited the park many times before but have never seen it like this covered in snow, it was beautiful!
This photo is presented as a quintych, with 5 framed overlapping pieces and measures about 40” by 22” inches on the outside. The color of the frames is dark espresso.
This is a limited edition piece, as I'm only doing 20 pieces at this size. This is number 1.
The technique is from the early days of b&w photography also known as hand tinting. These are chemically developed photos that I hand colored with translucent oil paint (Marshall photo oils).
A textured gel coating is applied to the front (no glass) of each photo. Wire on the back for easy hanging.
A certificate of authenticity is also attached to the back.

In my 2D mixed media work I enjoy conveying a story of a place with a history. I love bold textures as these are created by passing time, therefore putting emphasis on bygone days. In particular, I aim to show the beauty that exists in human-made wooden, concrete and steel structures contrasting with soft organic forms from nature. My favorite subjects are industrial objects, ghost towns and coastal themes with an element of human origin in it. To obtain my goal I portray these by high-contrast black and white photographs and hand color the photographs with either oils, acrylics or pastels. My frames have a relation with the subject matter, such that the final product is an integrated whole.
