Floral: a study in personalities

click on thumbnails below to see larger images                                                               My primary concern in these was the use of light as a way of achiveing chiaroscuro, using a timeless technique to illuminate the uniqueness of each flower.  Their beauty and power come from the "actual exactness" of what they are.  Using chiaroscuro accents  what they are in a dramatic way.  As of June 2012 all my images in this and all other bodies of work will only be identified by a number only and not a name.     Image: 8.5" by 11.5" or 12' x 16' matted larger.     Edition 36
