DAYDREAMING AT GREEN SPRINGS | Niki ButcherCentral Florida © 2017
Photographic Story There are some environments in Florida that just take me away to another place. Clyde and I took one of the trails at Green Springs and came across this wonderful jungle of green. I sat there and looked at it for a long time and thought of heaven or another world where peace for all existed and dreaming that maybe it could happen on this earth too. The Art of Hand Painting Black and White Photographs Photographed with a Sony digital camera and instead of oil painting with Q-tips and cotton balls, Niki was able to paint using Photoshop. Changing from the old-fashioned way of doing her art, to the new ‘fashion’ of using technology was challenging, but she’s enjoying getting back to her own personal expression. Archival Print Making Niki’s open edition gicleé artwork is printed on Sunset Bright Velvet Rag matte finish paper using eight archival inks. A state-of-the-art Epson Stylus Pro printer creates deep, rich dark values that hold subtle detail in the shadows as well as bright vivid colors that are truly tropical.
