Description Chula Weekend is a painting done freehand in Corel Painter using my Wacom digitizing tablet. It interprets a sulky fall night in Georgia in the 80's. 3 people in a pickup truck with golden retriever named Chula in the back. I wrote a poem about that night:Red sky, dawn at evening;Dog in the back, must be freezing...circles around her tailand the truck underneath her drives on. New crescent moon and the mind dances over the road.
Alicia Heyman, Nashville Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement My background as a graphic designer strongly influences the way I make art. I start out capturing a moment, a scene, an object photographically and then pull it into my computer and transform it. Every image speaks to me and guides me. Its more a matter of letting the image tell me what it wants to be. Usually, Each image is treated differently. I use a Wacom digitizing tablet and pen that allows me to digitally draw and paint by hand. So all my images are part photography and part drawing.
