Naomi, the singer in my new band, is also an art teacher.
After practice one day, we got to talking about art and poetry.
Since I dabble in both, she asked to see some of my work.
I showed her some copies of my digital art work and the first
thing she said was, "When are you going to have a showing?"
She thinks the work is that good.
I'm not so sure.
I'm going to link to a couple of pictures and ask what readers think:
China_01 - I scanned this page from a book, then manipulated it with PhotoShop.
China_02 - My first manipulation of the book page... into a framed silk wall hanging.
China_03 - The second manipulation... a gouache-type art print.
China_04 - Thirdly... turned the first manipulation into a framed egg-shape.
China_05 - Fourth manipulation... modern art.
China_06 - Yet another manipulation... green silk wall hanging, w/modern frame.
China_ 07 - A manipulation in black & red.
Warpaint - Native American, a Plains Tribal Member... developed from a napkin doodle.
Any questions or critiques?
