Description Reed Canal Park is one of my favorite parks in the Daytona Beach area. On one side, there is a large lake where a giant sloth's remains had been found years ago, and where you can now see various turtles and waterbirds. On the other side, there is a wooded area with paths for walking and jogging, and a playground area for children. The squirrels generally keep to that side, and are quite bold! People feed them raw peanuts, so they will come right up to you and beg on their hind legs! Then, they'll sit, practically at your feet, while you watch.
Chris Crowley, South Daytona Member Since July 2008 Artist Statement I have been doing pen and ink work since the 1970's, and eventually developed a style where I used watercolor washes with it. While I liked the results, I wanted more.
In 2006 I got my first digital camera. Once I realized what you could do with post processing on a photograph, I began altering them to become artwork. Now, I alter my artwork to become photos! The resulting mixed media final products are fun for me to do, and have opened a whole new world of creativity and possibility! While I still like both pure art and photography, I love pushing the boundaries of each.
Living in the Central Florida area for most of my life has provided me with beautiful scenery to capture. Whether it be a macro of a flower that is altered into a surreal state, or amping up the colors of a scenic, photography has become a way of life, and so has post processing, which brings out the artistic heart in me. It was just natural to progress from that to digitally altering my hand done art, as well. My style is my own, and I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy presenting it to you!
