Description In the Farmer's Market in Olympia, Wa.I just had to paint her moment of contemplation surrounded by the colorful harvest from her small farm.This painting is purely digital, using 'natural media' software.I'm finding the steps are exactly the same as in analog painting, but with the added bonus of no dry time.A brush stroke is a brush stroke is a brush stroke.

Siobhan McElwee, Pacific Northwest Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement UPDATE: As of Jan.2014 all Artist's proceeds from the sale of my art will be donated to EVMED Research LLC to further study into Enterovirus treatment and maybe someday, a cure. There are over 80 strains of EV, they are all highly infectious and there are no approved treatments for most of them. Polio is an Enterovirus, as an example. Some EV infections are fatal. For more information please check out EVMED's website at: http://www.evmedresearch.com/index.php
I have been a Fine Artist and Graphic Designer/Illustrator for over 20 years and have worked in many mediums. My Painting style ranges from very loose to finely detailed, depending on the demands of the subject matter. I've also been working a great deal with photography for the last few years, which seems to be taking most of my current focus ;)
I welcome your opinions of the work and comments ! Please keep in mind that the framing/paper options are open. I just happened to mat them up the way that I like to see them, although I HIGHLY recommend the Sommerset Velvet, Torchon and UltraSmooth Fine Art Papers for the paintings and drawings. The originals for some of these pieces are still available...contact me at my studio at :firstname.lastname@example.org for details ENJOY!
