Description

I've always been one who admires the scenery. I try to keep a camera with me so I can take pictures when I see houses and landscapes that captivate me for one reason or another, and my computer is filled with folder upon folder of saved snapshots. I never make prints of my photographs (I just can't take them seriously), so they just sit in their prospective digital folders, rarely receiving any sort of recognition.

Recently, I've been trying to correct this. I've been going through my photos and finding favorites. Then I paint from the photos, translating the scene into a new image. I like to think of this process as a way to re-digest memories, to look back on places I've been and feelings I've felt and re-experience. The end scene is never quite the same as as its inspiration, just as a memory is a reinterpreted version of reality.

"Negley View II" is one in a series of paintings based on snap-shots taken around my hometown, a hop/skip/jump outside of Harrisburg, PA. This is a view from Negley Park, a perfectly placed park on the West shore that overlooks the bridges to Harrisburg.

This is a digital print of an acrylic painting, printed on hq luster photo paper.
