"Silence": meditative poster art and more
'Thermo-dynamic art' is a phrase that comes to mind when thinking about how the original "ice designs" I photographed was a media prepared overnight by the transfer of energy during the freezing process.
The untouched original photograph of the patterns frozen on the glass are distinct. The spontaneous designs formed by water freezing is evident. It is also evident how the ice designs are comfortable with the new images that appear.
This image below is the one I'll tackle next. I can see a lot of potential in it.
I'm looking forward to seeing what can be done to that one but I did a number of studies of the original. Some good enough for posters. I like to develop a theme and then see how it progresses. This tendency is evident in the following images.
As the water froze the designs appeared. This happens predictably when the temperature cooperates. Each time there is a freeze the same type of feathered or fern-like designs appear. Other attributes of the image are cat hair which was stuck to the glass with the moisture and frozen into the ice design.
I began to work and soon had the sense of being on a woodland path as light was breaking, or perhaps leaving. All posters may be purchased at Zazzle.com. Details at bottom of the page.
The poster below is titled "Gate of Eden"
In the book of Genesis it is written: "...he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."
The image below is titled "Leaving Paradise"
The posters are developed from the first ice design photograph at the top of the page. You may purchase the images below at Zazzle. com by clicking the images and you can choose the size number and frame you want.
