Mixed Media, 2008
30 x 40″

During the summer of 2008, I participated in an outdoor painting class held in Palo Duro Canyon, just outside my hometown of Amarillo. My objective was to explore the use of textures from a tree in creating a painting of a tree itself. Immersed in the serene beauty of nature, I observed and painted as the tree gradually awakened to the day, utilizing fallen branches, leaves, and twigs as my artistic tools. Inspired by the likes of Claude Monet, I sought to capture the shifting colors and evolving light throughout the passing hours.

In this digital rendition of the original acrylic painting, I sought to blend digital textures and variations of color with the underlying acrylic canvas. Through digital manipulation, I painted over the original image and further experimented with textures and tonal variations. The resulting combination of digital and traditional mediums, when printed on a large scale, intensified the image, surpassing the vibrancy achieved with oil paint. This particular artwork marked a turning point in my career, as it fueled my curiosity and exploration of the possibilities afforded by the new medium, propelling me further into the realm of color exploration.
