Piece description from the artist
Photo composite, Giclee print on canvas. Limited edition 4/100 signed front & back, 4 coats of UV varnish, archival up to 200 years.
Taken just down the road from my home on a spring evening, the sun was just about to set.
The Mustardseed plants were in full bloom and covering the land like gold!
I returned the next day at the same time w/ tripod & camera, the sun was perfect, but the sky was cloudless and blue, so I marked my tripod so I could return tomorrow (at the same 7:20pm) and catch a more dramatic sky!
It rained all day, but the following day, percisly at 7:20, the sky was fantastic! Click!
What was impossible to do in the darkroom
a few years ago, the perfect day is here! thank you Photoshop!
Ron Morecraft spent over 30 years as a special effects photographer in New York City and New Jersey, creating fantasy images for clients ranging from Columbia Records and MTV to Revlon and The New York Times.
With his background in fine art, his painterly approach blossomed with the advent of Photoshop and other digital tools. Ron doesn't just take pictures, he "makes" pictures, executing his visions by supplementing his photographic work with his digital design skills. His subject matter ranges from travel to still life. Each image is unique – either as a painting, a collage or straight photograph.
Ron currently lives in Asheville, NC.
