Prize Winner! The original painting won the Second Place Award in the Hamilton County Artist Association’s “All Our Best” Exhibit in 2021.
I struggled with which category to place this painting. It depicts a family taking a walk in a park in the town where I grew up. My grandparents lived just beyond the trees, and we would walk over from their house to play on the play ground, play ball and swim. It was common to see families living their lives together in the park.
My process includes creating an acrylic wash to inspire the background, followed by a digital painting done using many transparent layers. I adjust the order and transparency of the layers until I get just the effect that I want and freeze it into a file for printing.
Each print is made after you place your order, using archival inks on archival water color paper with a white border displaying the quality paper.
