Artist's description:

Rhythm

Slow and steady. Strong and ready. The beat of the earth. She gave us birth. She put her ear to the ground, the mother makes sound. We are the ones to take care of her. If she dies our death is sure. We must not waste anymore time. She is holding up the last sign.

Words and Art by Rich Ray - Limited Edition Canvas Print

Rich Ray Art Process Development

This technique has taken several years to master. Many hours of trial and error, hundreds of mistakes, some happy and some not so much! My process involves three stages. First, I paint the abstract artwork. Second, I photograph the art and other textures from nature. Third, I choose the photograph and download all of the different layers to the photo editor program.

This technology enables me to play with all the elements together. I spend many hours moving and arranging each piece, like a puzzle. I know it is finished when I have achieved the right balance. Meaning, the brightest colors, visual textures, and contrast for the final printed original artwork. I have tried to do this by simply painting over the photograph. I was not able to achieve the bold look I was going for, it became to muddled. This is why I chose the digital technology. I feel this gives the customer the best possible image. The Giclee print is the original artwork with the process I have developed.

Materials used:

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.
