Roberta J Martin Artist my artwork and the stories and dreams they develop into

I have never developed a Blog before so please be patient with me... This artpiece was one I entitled "Shoes in the Sunlight" after seeing how the sunlight bounced off the shoes as it was streaming in thru the windows I thought to myself I need to take a picture of them so I can paint them later. I photograph a lot of things trying to capture the sunlight and the effect it has on things around it. So this artpiece developed. I did this piece both by hand and also thru Corel Painter IX program which I use a lot to compose my artwork and try different effects before I paint them out. Some times I print out a giclee print on canvas when I am happy with thre results and finish them up tweeking and finishing painting them... Sometimes I just print out a small copy to paint totally by hand... I enjoy both methods. A lot of my paintings develop into a story as they are painted out...
