Introducing New Art Series - A Grapevine's Persona on Exhibit

New Works Autumn's Persona, digital art © Susan Searway-Fertig
For the past three months I have been working on a new series based on grapevines. My process for creatingA Grapevine’s Persona – Digital Art Seriesis similar to the way I create my figurativePersonaseries only instead of using drawing, paintings, or watercolors as a basis I am using photography.A Grapevine’s Personaseries is dedicated to my husband who loves and introduced me to wines and going wine tasting. As we travel around vineyards I always have my camera close at hand, literally. I shoot anything and everything to find a composition. Yet, I mostly concentrate my work on nature. The most wonderful thing about working with nature as your subject matter is that it is ever changing. Artist Robert Bateman states it best, “Everything in nature has its own personality.” You can never capture or see the same composition twice. There are always little nuances of change. When you take photographs or observe wildlife they almost never stay in that “perfect” composition you envision. Therefore you have to do a lot of improvisation and creativity to get the composition you desire.

My new series is currently on display in my art studio at Art Works Downtown, Studio #18 and at Bacchus and Venus Wine Tasting and Art Gallery, Sausalito, CA.
