Photographed in Branch Brook Park, crown jewel of the Essex County Park System in NJ. Branch Brook Park spans Belleville and Newark and contains 4,000 cherry blossoms that put on a spectacular display every April.
About the Images
My work combines the expressiveness of painting with the realism of photography. To create my images I begin with a digital photograph that I "paint" over using a mouse or stylus and painting software. I then vary the transparency of the painted and photographic layers to create a unique hybrid image featuring the best of both media.
