I have been spending a lot of time lately working on my photography skills, and I have neglected my digital art. This piece has been lurking in my imagination for a while. It is a copyrighted image that I have created consisting of 7 different photographs. All of the photographs used were my own photography except for the actual mask. The basic mask is a purchased stock photo, I added the beads, ribbons, silk fabric, handle and sparkler- all separate images. The background image is a photograph I took in Savannah, Georgia at dawn- overlooking the river. The model is a dear friend that has posed for me on several different occasions in my studio. She is a stunning woman, and I am lucky to have her model for me.
This piece took me approximately three days to finish, about 20 hours of work total. I think that it has become one of my favorite pieces so far.
I hope that all of you enjoy it as much as I do, and I also hope that you remember- as artists- our dreams do come true--- every time we sit down behind our monitors, or focus the lens of our cameras!!!
