So I've been drawing for a long time, fascinated by people, printmaking, music and literature.
For instance, art is improved by music. As C.S. Lewis suggested, after you read a new book,
read an old book; dittos with music and art that you experience. Everything influences your output, though only you may recognize it.
Digital photography, in the Ps sense (not a technical whiz) is fascinating me now. I took over
a thousand photos, literally behind the movie camera, of actors and film makers during the filming of "Under Jacob's Ladder"; quick snaps as I tried to remain "invisible" in the midst of filming. These are the "prisoner" pieces in my portfolio. The movie trailer can be found here; http://www.cubecity.org/ujl_film.htm. I would love to do huge giclees or paintings of these and have a "prisoner" show.
I keep doing weird things with photography, but long to get into some painting again.
