I hand painted a reflected pattern onto a photograph of a wine glass stem. The result reminds me of a ray of light ascending to heaven. This image is an interesting combination of a few different techniques I have learned over the last 6 months or so. The image started as a photograph of my wine glass stem. It had a blue background behind it. I then used my hand painting technique to create a custom pattern to overlay onto the original photograph. Then I used my reflection technique to reflect the pattern. My art is evolving every day and I really enjoy that. I can go back to old photographs and create all new images from them that wouldn’t have been possible when I first took them. How exciting is that. Almost like using recycled materials in new construction.
