"rd", also known as Roy is a "native" of Florida, born and raised. He has a Bachelor of Fine Art from the College of Fine Arts at the University of Florida. rd has had a camera in his hands for many years to record the sights of his travels and life around him. I have a new Fine Art America web address for my Photographs.
For twenty or more years rd put his creativity into award winning watercolors that have found homes across the United States. Today, rd has put his creativity into producing fine art digital abstracts, each one a unique image. Some of the abstracts are indeed photo-manipulations that you can still perceive some remnant of the photograph. Most of them however are hours of manipulation of color, layer by layer, twist and turn, cutting and pasting and finally merging into a finished work of art. These works are sold only in large sizes and each is limited to one print. Once the images has been purchased, the image will be retired to a special gallery where they may be viewed but will not be printed nor for purchase. Once the purchase is complete - the buyer has accepted the print, the image for printing will be moved to a 'no longer in print' gallery and it will not ever be made into a large print again; the image may, however, be used on some products and as a card.
*note: the fine art digital abstracts will probably look best if printed with a glossy finish; metallic paper, acrylic or metal print, I think, will work best. A metal print may appear a bit darker in finish.
rd proposes to present the finest quality and best compositions. I truly think you will be pleased with any image you may choose to purchase.
