Painterly Series is a project I began that involves the art of post-processing images with software that creates an impressionistic-like painting; a digital painting of sorts. Images are carefully chosen to meet certain qualities that I deem favorable for such works as sketches and watercolors or oil-paintings. Sometimes I'll make a photograph with intent for my Painterly Series Project while other times an image may clearly express potential for such impressions. 

This has been an ongoing personal project - someday I'll pick-up a real brush but for now, this is my learning playground. For me the art of post-processing has always been an integral piece of completing my work. While I often believe in representing a scene as how I experienced it through my natural eye, I sometimes feel strongly about presenting a scene with how I emotionally felt from the experience and that requires an expression of artistic creativity which may come in the form of digital brush strokes.
