The Impressions From Nature series - abstract and semi-abstract images created digitally from natural scenes - includes some of my most recent work. All of the show images are included and additional images from the series. These photographs of natural scenes have been created with extensive digital manipulation. One of the purposes of art is to render the familiar as unfamiliar in order to inspire fresh insights. My aim is to create images that give the viewer a fresh perspective on the colors, textures, shapes, and forms of nature.
In my view, music is the ideal metaphor for fine art photographs. The images can be thought of as works of music, presenting multiple layers of meaning and open to repeated viewing. Particularly for nature scenes, the colors and textures of the natural world are reflected in the colors and tones of music.
