I posted this painting before when I thought it was done, but I looked at it with a friend one day and he made some good points. If you look at the before photo you will see that the petals in the middle of the flower bleed together, you can’t tell where one ends and another begins unless you look closely at the brush stroks. So I mixed up a nice dark reddish purple to fix that problem, and I did feel it was a big problem. Then I sat there staring at it and it told me it was still unfinished. A thought came to me out of the blue, photographs , the subject in focus and behind it out of focus. So I played with this idea, I’m not sure how it turned out but the painting finally feels finished. So take a good look at the before and after and let me know what you think, if you want.
I first came into contact with Steven N. Meyers work at my doctors office. One of the girls that works the front desk knows me very well. When I expressed my love for the calendar hanging behind her, and how I had never seen such work, she gave me the calendar. I looked at the calendar today and thought hey that would be perfect for my artist of the day.

Steven N M is a photographer and radiologist. He has been imaging human subjects in a medical setting for more then 25 years. He utilizes his expertise in radiological techniques to capture flowers and botanicals in invisible light. The fine art of X-ray photography allows the artist to reveal the textures, details, and structures of plants which are not normally visible to the human eye. To obtain these effects he uses super-sensitive, large format film. One of the only a few radiographic photographers practicing he helps to keep the art alive by continuing to expand his body of work. His radiographs have been digitally-colored to enhance these luminous images from nature. You can follow the link below to view his gallery, all in black and white.
I går surfet jeg rundt på nettet som jeg vanligvis gjør mer enn jeg sikkert burde. Jeg svippet innom Flickr-profilen min og så plutselig at bildestrømmen min hadde passert 60 000 visninger! Det er en utrolig stor milepæl, og jeg er så stolt. Det er det samme som om ca. hver fjerde bergenser har sett bildene mine! Her er en liten smak av hva som finnes på bildestrømmen min:
