BLESSINGS
The "Blessings" series is about the connection that life has with a universal whole and with a universal reality beyond individual control. The term “Blessings” connotes an empowerment. “Blessings” also refers to the universal laws of cause and effect as relating to the concepts of karma and fate. The allegorical story line in each image is established through the formal use of association, metaphor, symbol, icon, archtype, etc. that are to be found in the attributes of the visual elements. These images offer ideals for the viewer to interpret and consider about the process of life.

PROCESS NOTES
The images were created on the computer out of fabrications that were made and photographed specifically for computer manipulation. The initial camera imagery forms a foundation that is combined with objects and situations that were created in the computer without camera-made imagery. By the time an image is completed nothing is left untouched by digital manipulation of many sorts, whether it be color, texture, value, placement, etc. or simply construction or re-construction of an object that never existed outside of the computer. With digital control, surreal possibilities are created in the overall visual/perceptual structure.
