Albin Arts

This is Patty Albin from Albin Arts from Fairfield Glade Tennessee. Patty and her husband had this stand at the Dogwood Arts Festival in Knoxville Tennessee. It was a pretty interesting concept. They were selling photographs with fully painted frames. I would imagine that her husband is the one takeing the photos and she is the one that paints the frames.

What your seeing here is Patty starting to add a layer of painted leaves to the already painted background. When she is done the frame surrounding the photo of wild flowers will look as though the whole frame is part of the actual image. She was doing all of this free hand and did not have a copy of the photo (except for what was already in the frame).

About the Author

My first experience with a SLR camera was many years ago during high school, taking black and white film photos and processing them in the school's darkroom. It was at that time that I fell in love with photography and post-processing. Not being able to afford the film needed to continue learning photography and not having my own processing tools, I put down the camera. Many years later, I picked up a DSLR and started using Adobe Lightroom and fell back in love with photography. I'm also found on Facebook, Google +, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram
