Barn Swallow 6" x 6" on Aspen wood  $285.  Free 2-3 day shipping in US and Canada

This new project seeks to bring Art and Technology together using a CNC machine (computer driven routing tool) to carve relief images of my paintings and photos from wood then finish the results either as a wood relief or a relief carved painting.

Some examples below show a variety of ideas and concepts that can be created with this approach. If you have some thoughts about how you might like to use this method, please contact me with suggestions or commission ideas that could be developed. Please email me here:  wolberinchina@hotmail.com

Ruby Throated Hummingbird Carved Painting





                Ruby Throated Hummingbird Relief carved and painted                                                 
                6”x 6”  original acrylic on carved Aspen board $285 with free shipping in US and Canada

THIS PAINTING IS SOLD

My most recent project has been to bring Art and Technology together by using a CNC machine to carve relief images of my paintings and photos from wood then finish the results in a variety of ways. On the next few postings I will show some examples of my initial experiments.

It is possible for me to use a painting or photo to translate into a relief or 3D image so that the image can be carved in wood.  I’m still experimenting with many ideas so if you have some thoughts about things you might like to see me try, please email me. However not all photos work well for this kind of process. I’ve found that using Aspen wood gives a clear image so that the wood grain doesn’t interfere with the carved image. 


The image for this post is of a ruby throated hummingbird that I’ve used a software called “Blender” to create a relief image to carve then paint the relief image for the special 3D effect you see here.

If you have questions or for more information please email me at wolberinchina@hotmail.com

THIS PAINTING IS SOLD 

This is another of the alphabet ABC paintings that I began some time ago. I’ve been on the lookout for a cat image and finally found a small cat sculpture I like. It’s a small antique pewter image of a cat stretching that fit into the idea I wanted to paint. There are two sets of Embossing Company blocks here and the lion is from a third set of even older blocks.

There is something about flight that is magical, especially when we observe it in nature. Seeing this bird stretch wings to take flight was a mystical moment that I wanted to capture. It’s not as easy as you might think to catch that instant just before taking flight.

This painting celebrates the beauty we experience each year as summer comes to an end in a riot of colors as nature paints the trees with yellow, gold, orange and vivid reds and pinks. It has taken all the colors in my palette of reds and yellows to portray a snapshot of this fall season. The sound of wind-rustled leaves and the scent of burning leaves are embedded in this painting along with all the visual information you see here.

Chinese Lanterns


Lantern Plant: Physalis alkekengi 7” x 5” (17.8cm x 12.7cm) acrylic on gessoed canvas panel unframed with free shipping within USA and Canada.
To see all my past work on this blog click HERE. 
THIS PAINTING IS SOLD

This plant looks like the red lanterns seen everywhere on the streets of China. I'm always interested in the contrasts of textures, particularly the wood textures in the wall behind the plant. While it does not have a light inside, the Chinese Lantern or Japanese-lantern plant does have a berry inside that has been used for it's medicinal value but it is said to have some strong side effects so don't try eating it. It's an interesting plant that will spread rapidly once it has taken root.
