Two new pieces based on some photographs I took from the top level of the parking structure at Cal State Long Beach. I like the god-like view. Like much of my digital work these pieces explore the space between photography and painting. Looking down on our environment is a some what unfamiliar perspective and gives a chance to assess out man-made landscape with a fresh eye. The manipulation of the image is an echo of the manipulation of our environment it's man's need to give order and to create structure.
