Clematis Variations

clematis 1


clematis  2


Using an older shot of a garden clematis, I created these two variations by incorporating embossed layers.  I then created a third variation and combined it with a base layer of a junk mail abstract.  The resulting blending produced an antique alternative process feel . Building on the rectangular element in the junk mail layer,  I created a resized image of the clematis that appears to recede in an infinite regression. Till very recently, Spring has been in a state of infinite regression – cool and wet. We now have above normal temperatures with summer like conditions and the flowers are gradually returning to the garden. The clematis has not yet arrived.

While working on these last two compositions I listened to the vocals of Caro Emerald ( Caroline Esmeralda van der Leeuw , a Jazz singer from the Netherlands ). Here is a sample of her work, Paris (lyrics here).
