Time to move.

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

From now on, I'll be blogging at:
www.shaylamaddox.blogspot.com.

This move was over 3 years of procrastination in the making. I should have been posting on a site address that used my actual name a long, long time ago. It's more professional that way. It's time.

My apologies for the hassle this causes to everyone who knows this site, links out to it, etc, but I had to do it eventually, and better sooner than later.

Here's a preview of my newest painting, which I will post on the new blog within the next couple of days. See you all there. :o)

Sunset Rhapsody . 12x16 inches . 2009

Monday, December 07, 2009





1. natural light (tree shadows included)
2. artificial light
3. artificial light + blacklight = magic
4. uv/blacklight only
5. no light! no light i say! it glows in the dark!


And it's color changing! :oO

Okay, so that's not exactly new for me, but it's still awesome, and this one changes into a rainbow of colors. Sweet. I love my glow pigments.

Actually, I really wanted this piece to highlight all my Light Reactive techniques, so that each image would look very different from the next. I think it worked out pretty well. :oD The only difficulty I had was taking pictures of it in natural light. There are so many trees around where I live and the early December sun is at such an angle that it was virtually impossible to find a spot in my house that didn't have shadows from the trees. Personally, I thought that looked kind of rad, but I didn't want anyone to think that the huge dark patches were part of the painting itself. Fortunately, I managed to get one shot where the shadows were minimal.

Sunlight is cool. It's alive. ;o)

Sunset Rhapsody is available in my Etsy shop.
