Digital Art - Digital Art / Photography Based Digital Hand Painting
A broken window in an abandoned building is briefly brightened by trailing colorful autumn leaves.
Along quiet streets in small towns around the world can sometimes be seen buildings that have outlived their original owners and even their purposes. Not much longer for this world, they are often boarded up to to prevent vandalism and quietly await their fate.
But Mother Nature can have other plans. In spring and summer, wildflowers and long silky emerald grasses grace the buildings' foundations and birds nest in the cavities in the old wood. In winter caps of feet-thick snows soften the harsh lines, silvery icicles sometimes as long as your arm sparkle in the sunshine and add mystical beauty. But in autumn ... that's where Mother Nature really outdoes herself. The wild sumac, always the first to turn in Central PA, turns impossible shades of oranges and scarlets and golds, and winds around the old windows in a lover-like embrace while the brilliant greens of the other vines remain vivid.
Like the song days, there truly can be beauty in break down.
This image was very loosely inspired by one of my own original photos taken in the town of Pavia, Pennsylvania in October of 2008. It was hand-painted, digitally, in Corel Painter with a Wacom tablet, the art pen, and a wide variety of beautiful brushes.

Fine art purchases of this image will not include a watermark, and if I may make a recommendation ... this image will look its very best on the fine art paper choice of "picture rag."
