The Starry Messenger

Title inspired by “The Starry Messenger” by Galileo Gallei
I came across this great vintage image of a messenger at the Canadian Library and Archives. I colorized him. The background is a composite made up of my own images that I had photographed, one antique rabbit print and one stock image which I usually don’t use in my work but I do not have access to Italian Cypress trees and I really wanted Italian Cypress trees so I had to license it.
My image, “Stranded in the Moonlight”, is in “Small Works” show at the Sidney Mishken Gallery at Baruch College in New York City. Elizabeth Avedon is the Curator for the photography in the show and I am very thankful that she chose one of my pieces. Opening night is March 2, 2017 from 6-8 pm
