New Bonnie Chapa Art: “Put A Cork In It”

Written by Bonnie Chapa on . Posted in Bonnie's Art Gallery

This one is kind of my artistic answer to those who have criticized digital photo manipulation as not being an art form.  Put A Cork In It.  Photo manipulation is form of digital art that involves photography, illustration, and graphic design all at the same time and there are so, so many styles.  Just because it is not traditional paint on a brush hitting the canvas does not mean it isn’t art.  There is a vision there just like when a writer writes a story.  If they type it out on a computer vs. using pen and paper does that mean it is any less of a story?  Of course not.  Creativity has no limit and those unknowns we discover as we create are hard to define.  I see a hint of Monet here, realism in the center with a little bit of pop art all over that cork.  What you may see could be something very different and that is ok, too.  That is one of the many things that makes each of us unique; our vision, our imagination, our creativity, is all our own.

New Bonnie Chapa Art: “I’m A Huge Fan”

Written by Bonnie Chapa on . Posted in Bonnie's Art Gallery

My husband and I were in Austin, New Years Day 2013, walking down San Jacinto Blvd headed back to our hotel when we crossed the street and there was this long front porch area at the Vince Young Steakhouse. (in the South, my South anyway, anything long and out in front of a building where you can sit is a “front porch”, even at restaurants and businesses).
It was a dull dreary day, the place was closed and all I could think was, “What a great porch!”
The original photograph was all gray tones. In my mind, I could imagine this porch alive, full of people, music, fun…what Austin is all about.
On New Years Day, we all begin again. A new year with new opportunities. The colors on this front porch rise like the sun, actually in reverse, all new and ready to touch your eye. New opportunities, while reflecting on old (the reverse of the color spectrum usually represented with the rising sun). I’m a huge fan of new opportunities, because I can always reflect on where I came from to be where I am at that moment. It’s like going forward while going back, but never staying still.
