    Photography turned to Art ...

    I'm "insane” and do strange projects. I was asked to be a backup exhibitor at a local gallery, and do 12 digital paintings, which I did, and then got obsessed and did 142 in four months. Here is a selfie painting example ( In My Own Hands ), based on my images of parts of me and inside of...
