My crab series originated as an oriental brush painting in 2006. The original piece was water soluble ink on rice paper, which hangs in my home today. A few years ago I did a photo transfer of the image for a friends birthday and fell back in love with this little crab. As a result of taking photos/scanning images of work for this blog I have become reacquainted with Photoshop, it does not replace getting my hands dirty in the studio, but it enables me to make art everyday. This is a good thing.
