This is a photoshop practice after a painting of an ex-student Nathan Fowkes. His style is much quicker with bolder brush strokes. I used his colors and compositing to create this work. As always I'm open for comments and suggestion.

This "Art Work" is the results of my new use of Photoshop CS5. I started exploring the new paint brush tool. They are in my opinion the thing that has been missing form Photoshop all these years. Thanks to Photoshop for the new tools. I have never been an Abstract Artist. And I'm not sure that this qualifies. After playing with the brush strokes I began playing with composition. It was fun. I actually like the final results. What do you think?

This is a very personal Artistic statement. Two cars that are pictured in this work. A 1948 Cadillac I've been working on for over 30 years and a 1933 Chevy around 10 years. These are restoration projects I've enjoyed working on when I have had the time etc. They will probably never get finished because of time and money. At 70 my skills and abilities are not what they use to be. Also a retirement income limits the amount of work I can do at one time. So the hopes of finishing these projects and driving them get less each day. However I really enjoy working on them, so the joy is found in the work not the product. It is my feeling that this Photoshop work depicts the above statement.
