Description I captured this image (minus the ravens) a few years ago in Millcreek Village, a fantastic historically preserved early American village in New Jersey. I would love to know what happened to this amazing tree- some huge storm or maybe lightning. It's limbs were so contorted and angled it reminded me of a giant insect. I used this photo in color for a painting once but in black and white, all of the detail in the grass and brush reminded me of an etching. So again, it has new life as The Raven's Wood.
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!
