Description I took this image at Cross Estate Gardens in New jersey earlier this year and was pleased with the composition and artwork I used but always felt something was lacking to make it work for me. Then, as if on cue, while I was working on the image, I heard lots of commotion outside my window and realized my birds were back! A huge flock of blackbirds comes to my neighborhood every fall filling the trees and sky and covering the ground! I grabbed my camera and got as many shots as I could before they moved on. They were just what I need to complete 'The Gathering'.
Darlene Foster, Plainfield, New Jersey Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement I am a New Jersey based artist offering photographic art services to professional photographers (as well as the general public) across the country and beyond. My services include retouching, restoration and collage, but I specialize in digital painting interpretations of a photographer's images that he or she can offer to their clients. You can read a little more about me and my business by visiting My Website.
The work you see on this site I do for me (and hopefully, the enjoyment of others). I've always had that little something in my head (and my heart) that nudges or sometimes pushes me to create. I've followed it in many directions over the years- drawing, painting, photography, music. Wherever it leads, I've always enjoyed the journey and will continue to do so. Please visit My Blog or My Facebook Page for more details on what I've been working on lately.
I hope you enjoy my images and thanks for stopping by!
