CONTEMPORARY ART (ABSTRACTS)
Therefore, if someone has interest to own an image represented here, there are two options. One, photo enlargements can be ordered here through SmugMug according to their policies. Two, contact the Artist directly regarding ordering a giclee print from Studio. The two produce different types of reproductions, both are quality. But only the Studo-ordered print will include a personal signature.
ABOUT THE COLORS YOU SEE HERE: The originals are very colorful; however, on screen in this website, they glow brilliantly as if a spotlight is shining through them. This doesn't exactly translate into the printed product! I also need to possibly Photoshop every entry again, especially those with brilliant reds and blues . . . I suspect I lightened them up too much, and this might be the reason some colors in the paintings here appear TO ME to be too exaggerated. There is a learning curve here I've not pinned down yet between how a picture appears on my computer screen in Photoshop, and how it appears when uploaded into SmugMug. Especially with all the color paintings uploaded into SmugMug, I've had to work with 4x5 and 35mm negative-archives which were in various stages of deterioration! So it's been a tedious, huge project since September or October, 2010, sporadically working these images to the point of my submissions here. I believe this CONTEMPORARY Gallery, and the IMPRESSIONISTIC PAINTING KNIFE Gallery, may need at least half of their images reworked in Photoshop to back off on their 'internal glow'. But in the end, that may be what their files look like after significantly fixing badly aged negatives.
