Listen to lyrics put to music HERE

There’s no reason
That I should be afraid
I’ve been played
It don’t matter
Just another nom de guerre
He will just fade
And tomorrow
I’ll be in another mood
That’s all good
I’ve lived worse

Always could

Ladadeedeeda

Before I know it
Someone better will be here
Getting near
I like cliff diving
I’ve made falling my career

Ladadeedeeda

I’ll be happy
Everyone thinks I am a mess
That’s ok
If they knew me
They’d think of me even less

Ladadeedeeda

Nothing matters
Except the color of your eyes
When you’re crying
Is when you tell your biggest lies

Ladadeedeeda

I got a new app called iColorama, this in combination with a few other apps, Superimpose and Procreate to name a few, and I’m having so much fun creating new art.

Sometimes when I’m painting or making digital art I stare at the picture for so long  that I feel like I lose touch with how it really looks. It’s like saying a word over and over until it doesn’t make sense. The eternal question to my mind is, do you see what I see?

Possibilities

This is what I love about the world of iPhonography, better known as digital art. One picture can yield a plethora of results. The possibilities are endless. Maybe the examples below don’t quite show the extent in which you can take one photograph and turn it into something completely new, but it’s a taste.

^Original photo. This is me. I hate to always use photos of myself and do use photos of my friends with permission. But when I use a photo of myself I don’t have to worry about getting approval of the end results, so I feel a lot more freedom just using pictures of myself.

These images were created using digital painting, photo editing programs that allow me to distort, mirror, color adjust, and filter. I’m still getting to know my different programs and all of these results come by way of simply experimenting and having fun. The ones I really like will be made into prints and are available on Etsy in my shop here: www.Davs.Etsy.com some even get printed onto iPhone cases, throw pillows, stationary, and tote bags. I was painting non stop for a few years but after stumbling on this wonderful artist and iPhonographer Sarah Jarrett I became inspired to try my hand. I will still go back to painting at some point, but I’m so I thrilled by this new (to me) art form that it’s been my focus for several months now. I hope you enjoy seeing some examples of what one photograph can transform into.

Featuring Leigh Viner

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Currently in Denver living my dream working as a full time freelance artist and photographer and dreaming the next dream of moving abroad eventually, but I think the stability with family while my daughter is still young is better here for now. I can always travel, which I have a strong passion for as well.

When did you know that art was your thing? From a very young age, It was always something that I just loved and being a shy child I found it as a great outlet to express my emotions.

Do you have a favorite medium? It depends on the moment while I am creating. Some weeks my camera is my favorite medium, while other times painting with oils or illustrative work. I have a vast collection of art supplies now and just have to go with what I am feeling when deciding what to use, most of the time I love to mix a bit of everything.

What’s your favorite part of the art making process

It is almost a meditative process, I find that while I am creating I am really still and truly in the moment, otherwise I am one who rarely sits still.

What inspires you to create?

I can find inspiration in just about anything. I sometimes can be overwhelmed with so many ideas, but I try to organize my ideas and categorize them for future projects or when the mood or timing feels right.

What’s the most rewarding thing about sharing your art with the world? Honestly when someone buys a piece of my art and it can bring joy to them for any reason at all, I feel so honored and grateful.

Where can we find your work?

You can currently find my work on these sites: www.leighviner.etsy.com {prints} leighviner.bigcartel.com {originals}
