Using an aerial photograph from NOAA of Pensacola, Florida taken shortly after Hurricane Ivan, I’ve modified my old “memory” template to produce this rendering. Instead of keeping some background imagery, like in DC Memory, I’ve made this rendering to show only the two primatives used to make the rendering. The result is what I think to be the future of my next renderings (as in expect more renderings in the “memory” series). I really like the way the reflection of the source imagery makes the bridge over the water appear to be an oval. I can’t wait to get this map printed!

In the full size version you can actually see the houses in the background that were damaged in Florida by Hurricane Ivan in September. You can also see her eyes, and face as well. I choose the background image simply because its a picture of Mother Earth’s vengence. I broke away from my one light source convention to include an extra light source on her crotch to represent rebirth. Was thinking of adding a wooden cross behind her to artistically imply that Mother Earth is dying for your ecological sins. Kinda philosophically heavy or not.
