My latest watercolors and new digitized media are all about flowers. In 2019, I have begun to do my watercolor technique on silk. This has also extended itself in to experimentation with different Shibori techniques used in hand painted and hand printed (from my cut linos) on silk scarves.
My bio is extensive since my career has extended over too many decades. Detailed Resume can be found on www.franckeart.com. "I really believe it isn't what you have accomplished but the work which is important. Does the work stand on its own? Does it speak to you? Can you feel air, smell the aromas, and be transported. That is what the essence of my art is."
2018 spring has been about photographing flowers and taking them elsewhere through computer apps. These "new media" works are stepping stones to creating abstract floral watercolors ; but, they turned out to have a beauty of their own which I wanted to share in prints on aluminum or finearts prints.
