My artwork is dedicated to those who love Outer Space, Deep-Sky Objects, vibrant colors, and stunning images. I love astronomy and intense colors, and I create Digital airbrush over mixed media paintings of thickly colorful astronomical themes - from exotic exoplanet landscapes to stellar explosions! My approach starts with a mixed media process using watercolors, acrylics, and alcohol inks on a full sheet of 300# heat pressed watercolor paper to create my background (very abstract at this point). Then I take a few days or weeks to "stare" at the image until my mind begins to discern shapes and patterns where I didn't see anything before....once I feel like I know what the image wants to be, I load the high-resolution digital file into Photoshop. There I can create layers on top of the original image (without damaging the original image), and then use any of the thousands of Photoshop brushes to paint in the exo-planets, nebulas, moons, and landscapes that I see in my mind. Then I have the finished image converted a second time into a high-resolution digital file that will produce the intensely colorful pieces you see here.
