Local painter accentuates work in electronic medium
Submitted by Mary Chalmers Main, Chilliwack
Mary Chalmers Main takes her talent from canvas to digital. Below, a painting called "Three Sopranos and a Tenor."
have recently learned of a new way to present art, called Photography Digital Art. Each picture is based on one of my original photographs, and then worked on with Photoshop, 'painted' as it were, into what you now see.
It is like working with light and colour, and I find it tremendously exciting! I am always ready to try something new, and this to me, is an extremely vibrant way to produce what I see as beautiful pieces of art. When I see a painting, or any pieces of visual art which to me is just right in colour, shape, or light, it 'sings' to me, just as certain pieces of music make me shiver! This art sings to me!
I can also use many more
ways of creating prints on many different surfaces, with the
availability of cheaper printers etc. I am so happy with all this
new found freedom, and I hope I can share my joy with all who see my
art. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
