This is the City Girl. It is from a photo of an orchid i once had. This image means many things to me. most of all.... rejection.
This was one of my very first digital "paintings". (over the years i have struggled with the terminology because there really is no paint involved. and the name digital art doesn't sit well with me either. so in recent times, i have come to just call them pieces. as in pieces of art.
I was so excited when i finished this one that i sent it to my former art professor/art dept director and she said it was nice but she longed to see it in thick oils on canvas. Sorry lady.
So i was hurt and haven't talked to her since. There was more to the dynamics of the story but yeah. i have struggled with the validity of my current art form for long. August 2003 actually.
This one will be printed today and framed and given to someone special. it has never been printed before. but here, i offer the full resolution file for you viewing delight?
City Girl was created in photoshop 6.0 using a 640x480 digital photo
