Ever notice how some people are so funny and insecure about change? That thought occurred to me after a conversation with a very nice woman who runs an arts center in mid-coast Maine. There was an event at which artists could show their work and since I haven't been able to do so yet, I thought it was a good opportunity. This woman had seen my work on line and cautioned me not to call my work digital paintings as she would get flack about it from other artists. I told her I would call them digital mixed media since some of them are based on the photos I take. But what of this my friends:
This is a digital painting which I created in both photoshop and in corel paint. Because I like to be a shite-disturber, I gonna bring it to that even and call it a giclee of a digital painting. Then this morning on my daily digital art email, was a link to a story by Joe Nalven that echoes this theme.
Then I ran across this story the other day about selling digital art (and video too I suppose). I've also reached out to the digital art community via the Digital Art Guild to see if there are any members from New England or Maine. I'm thinking of starting a Facebook page for local digital artists out here and perhaps we can do local shows the way the San Diego folks do.
