Resurfacing

oil on wood panel 16 x 24 in

Below is an old seascape painting of Lake Michigan with a view of South Manitou that I had been wondering what to do with.

The solution came to me when my friend Cindy¬† took a snapshot of me at another beach of Lake Michigan. I extracted the figure from Cindy’s snapshot and ‘overlaid’ it with a photo of my old seascape painting using an adobe photoshop algorithm.

Surrealistically rising out of water with my taupe pants making less of a statement than my orange jacket.
