By now, if you’re a regular here, you know this site is all about the art — the art of trucks! (haha).
I have a lot of blogs, with different angles on my many interests (here are ALL my links). I started this blog to learn WordPress, in anticipation of changing my art website to a WordPress platform. Mission (more or less) accomplished.
My latest art (promotional) activity has been focused on art fairs, since I no longer am with a gallery.
I took the trucks to The Beverly Hills Art Show two weeks ago and didn’t sell any. Boo.
This week, I’ve been working on an application for the Luxembourg Art Prize and uploading my work to Saatchi Art. I’m concentrating on my 2014 On the Edge: US series and have been updating all the images in a new desktop version of Waterlogue[I was comped a copy for being a beta tester]. This new version has been great for my road trip photos, since I like need to edit them and I am able to do a much better job in Photoshop vs editing on my phone, which I currently do for the trucks.
Ready, set, GO!
My third year of A-Z digital watercolors of trucks commence April 1st.
The images are the back end of trucks that I photograph during my morning commute. After I get to work, I process them through a phone app called Waterlogue and post to Instagram and other social media.
The best way to view the entire ongoing series is on my Tumblr.
Still with the trucks. I have not yet tired of this highlight of my morning commute.
I have already found most of the alphabet. I have a stickie of the stragglers on my car’s console. Might have to do some truck chasing.
In case you’re new to this series, here’s how I create these:
The A to Z truck images are created with an iPhone app called Waterlogue.
I take the photos during my morning commute,
either going really slowly on an onramp or stopped in traffic.
Curious about the A to Z Challenge? Read more here, on the A-Z Blog, and consider giving it a try! I’ve discovered new blogging friends and have created lots of new art through it.
First, in 2015, I used the Waterlogue App to turn photos of food and drink into “watercolors”. I did it every day for a #100dayProject Instagram challenge and went way beyond the 100. Link for series on Tumblr
Second, today I used real watermedia (watery gouache) in another app that I usually use to convert my day job outfit textiles into circular compositions AKA #tinyplanets.
I see potential for a new path of exploration!
These were both originally posted on Instagram, but I like the Archive feature on Tumblr better for finding old Instagram posts.
