Rows and rows of books
Lure me into their pages
I leave with arms full

I usually do work in acrylic. As part of my process, Iíll shoot a reference photo and scan it into the computer. Then, in Photoshop, Iíll adjust the contrast and colors, print the image, and use the print as reference for a painting.

But this time I decided not to do a painting, and put more time into manipulating the image digitally.
I still feel I did all the work by hand, just using a different medium.

I spent the same amount of time on it that I would have if I were painting it. It still looks like my work, like the way I distorted the buildings. Itís a wormís eye view from several angles at once. That makes the image dramatic.
