BARBERVILLE YARD ART | Niki ButcherPierson, Florida © 2021
I LOVE funk and have always wanted to stop at Barberville Yard Art and look around. So finally, on our last photographic trip, I got the chance! This place is truly a wonderland and filled with so much stuff for the yard. But, it also has funk for inside the house and beautiful woodwork in the very back of the yard. So, much fun! And yes, I did buy ‘stuff.’ 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.
