The Etherial Boulder

Etherial Boulder, Granite Dells, Prescott Arizona



This image is a mixed media image with elements of photography and watercolor painting of a large granite Boulder at the Landing on Lake Watson in Prescott, Arizona. The area where the photo is taken is known as the Granite Dells and is a remarkable geologic formation. On the day this image was captured the sky was a deep blue and cloudless. It made for a great image in a stock photography catalog but was without spirit or emotion.

To create this image, I took a beautiful cloud image, printed in black and white and then handprinted using watercolors. This was then scanned and added to the boulder image to give the sky a moody and soft feeling. Additionally, I used the dodging process to give the image a more painterly sensibility and a warm glow.

Only one original of this image is created, signed, dated and with a certificate of authenticity. The image is then used for creation of an open edition but otherwise archived and kept only for historic purposes and publications. To ask questions about the original you can contact me by email at waynedking9278@gmail.com.

Spirit Pony in a Flooded Mangrove

A mysterious white faced horse stands in floodwaters in a Florida mangrove. This alludes to Native American Indian legends that broadly exist among tribes from every corner of the Americas. The white faced spirit pony is an oft used allusion in my images. 

Two similar original images exist of this work of art, an image that has a flooded mangrove that is etherial but essentially a photograph. The second treats the mangrove forest differently using blurring, smudging and various methods of manipulation to create a more "painterly" effect with the mangrove forest. Each original image is created, signed, dated and with a certificate of authenticity. 

The images are used for creation of an open edition and posters but otherwise archived and kept only for historic purposes and publications. To purchase an original contact the artist at waynedking9278@gmail.com.
