Art, photoart and Photography by me. Imagik = image magic. Magic is the effect that image-play has on me. I hope to share that. Images, eclectic, whatever turns me on at the moment. My creative play. To say it, cross imagination with magic.
Self-portrait of the Artist Reflected in an Autumn Pond, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. This was done in a combination of Picasa and Irfanview with the leaves added afterward in Photoshop. Click image to view larger.
The Water's Edge, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. This is a reworking of a detail (the detail) from yesterday's smudge painting. (It is a digitally altered photograph.) You may or may not be able to see the changes, but that's in part because the pictures are so small on the blog.
Elphie, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. My latest digital Smudge Painting. I did this on Leopard, my new Mac, but then emailed it to myself and cleaned it up a little on Tabitha, my Toshiba PC tablet laptop. I don't have a "pen" or "tablet" with the Mac and it is really hard to do details well because the mighty mouse is a little spastic.
A Painting of Rachel on Christmas, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. This is a smudge painting made from a photo. The Photo came out completely black because the flash failed. I manipulated it and smudged it to get this. 26.5 x 35. Click image to view larger.
