Although I get 4 months off over the summer, with 2 kids it becomes very hard to make time for the studio without an overwhelming sense of guilt. I’ve brought home a couple easels and some painting materials so that I can work both at home and the studio.
Lately, I’ve been playing with Adobe Photoshop CS6 new “content aware” tool. You highlight an object in a photo, press delete and a dialog window pops up. A new option called content aware analyzes what’s around your selection and tries to figure out what would be behind the object you’re deleting. it creates some unusual outlines that I thought would be interesting as a painting. They also make me think about memory and events that, although they happened, are no longer part of my memory.
