Latest work(s): "Red Canyons" and "TW"

I took a photo of scratched metal a few years ago and I find it's a "go-to" element in a lot of my photomontages where I want to add lines and texture. Both of these montages incorporate that same metal photograph. (Diane M., it's the background in that flower photo you have of mine.)

These two images are completely different, but I like the similar textures they have. The top photo contains just one photograph (my photo of the scratched metal); I drew the other elements. The bottom photo incorporates perhaps three photographs: a railroad car, a container, and (again) my favorite piece of metal. ©Carol Leigh
