spicy: Ariel Elich

There she was in all her spicy glory walking through my front door. Her hair a bright orange and peach, a mistake, but for me it was a wonderful gift. It was at that moment that inspiration flew into me, and a photo popped into my head.

This photograph is the continuation of a series I started over a year ago. There is something extremely satisfying about painting a living breathing human. Using the skin as my canvas and the body contours to guide my hand is a wonderful and unique experience. The painting allows me to take the creative experience to a higher level. Then being able to make this temporary art permanent, using photography, satisfies my craving for artistic outlet even more.
