Description This is a delightful rendition of Colorado on one of its best days! The base photo is by Jesse Young. The artist used PS CS6 exclusively on this image. The artist employed the oil paint feature to achieve the fluid motion of the clouds and trees. On more than one occasion, the patrons have accused the artist of being on LSD or some other hallucinogen when creating the composition. Not to worry, the artist was completely sober. Aside from the trees and the clouds, the clarity of the water is worthy of note. This is a limited edition of 100.
Matt Jackson, Colorado Springs Member Since January 2012 Artist Statement Hello, my name is Matt.
I am a digital artist. I am not a photographer.
I sell my pictures through out Colorado at various fairs and festivals.
I have many limited editions.
If you wish to contact me, my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is a short Bio:
Prior to 2009, I was consumed by my job to the exclusion of everything else that's important. I was extremely successful in what I “accomplished.”
In 2009, as the pressures and excesses mounted, I was toppled and descended into a profound depression. I was out of work for two months. As I recovered, I found solace through Photo Shop. I began making pictures and eventually reclaimed my life through art. The images I create speak to the person who was hidden for all those years. I am liberated from the mundane world I once dominated.
When I returned I was transferred into a less stressful, less prominent position. Some would call it failure.
Now, in retirement, I show my work at mountain art fairs here in Colorado. People are excited by my images, and I consider myself moderately successful, having sold over 1600 images.
Although I am nearing 70, I don’t know what the future has in store for me. I do know that this journey is not over, and it includes my family, my God, and the truth of who I am today.
