Close To God
When I dance I feel close to God. The more I move the closer I get. If I leap he pushes me higher. If I spin, he spins me faster. When I hit the ground, he is there to catch me. So, I dance to be closer to God. He dances to be closer to me.
Words and Art by Rich Ray - Limited Edition Canvas Print
The process I use includes my abstract painting and ink work layered in and throughout the finished piece. I have spent hundreds of hours developing this process. It is unique to me as it offers a style of visual art not seen elsewhere. I spend time in photo editor arranging the layers, colors and textures to bring out the most vibrant and stylized outcome.
I use these materials to create abstract work that is incorporated in photo editor to create the finished printed piece. Acrylics, Oils, Inks, Paint, Photos, Pastels, Pencils, Pens, 140 pound Cold Pressed Cotton Paper, Photography, Photo editor.
