Album Cover Nostalgia

LaRiviere_Abstract-2

My earliest training in the arts as a young adult was taking night and weekend courses in graphic design and airbrush painting in Vancouver. There were no computers in those days, and everything was done mechanically by hand. As an audiophile with a collection of LPs (250+ now all gone), I was always impressed by album cover art and spent a lot of time studying the fronts and backs of the covers. These days I’m more of a technophile, and whenever I discover new apps I spend hours processing hundreds of [my own] photos and images through one or more of the apps to see if anything interesting happens. Maybe it explains why I’m so drawn to the square format for much of my work… because these images sure remind me of album cover art!
