"I love worn, chipped, rusted and rustic things. When objects fall in my path, I pick them up and carry them home. A feather, a lost hammer, discarded pieces of wood. Both man and nature made. I collect things in boxes and crowd them on shelves. One by one they will be picked up and placed beside another discovery. A story will emerge as I sit arranging my still life. I may not be able to see it right away, but I trust that it is there, hidden in symbols and shadows."
This collection of work by LYNNE ANN MITCHELL consists of digital photos manipulated with Photoshop and Corel Painter, which are then printed to canvas and hand-painted with gel medium.
