Description I love this piece. Its so fun. Ive been wanting a picture of Einstein for years so I decided to create one myself.Each digital painting is derived from a photograph that I have taken myself. The photographs are my palette to create each computer generated painting. I like the viewer to take from each painting what they want..what they see..how it makes them feel. So I prefer to not disclose exact descriptions of each piece. Of course some are more simple and the title tells all. But do not let the title of my works distract you, as in many of my paintings, you may find more than what the title states.
Melanie Plummer, Wellington, Ohio Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement Hrmm, what to say about myself...
Welcome! My name is Melanie and Im a digital painter as well as an amature photographer. In the past 6 weeks, Ive moved from Florida to Missouri and now Im currently residing in Ohio with the love of my life, Michael. Right now Im concentrating on making a living with my art and photography.
"How do you do your art?" I take photographs then I use Adobe Image Ready to turn them into paintings. I dont like to go into more detail about it. My art is very unique as is the technique and Id like to keep it that way.
"Why do you do your art?" I love to get people to think or feel outside their normal realm. My goal in my art is to touch something inside you. Perhaps see things a bit differently..to open your mind and your soul. (yes, kinda deep but that is my goal :P)
Not all my paintings are what they appear. Alot of times you may see something completely different than what I do, or the next person. And I love that. I want you to get from it what you feel and not let the title or anything else get in the way of that.
I think most artists want that. Its not so much where they are coming from, but what you take from the piece that matters.
