Liquid Cow Staring at me from the other side of the fence, this cow had personality. She remained motionless until I had completed the shot, almost as if she posed. I decided to create flow and motion by adding swirls, curves and colour blending to match her persona. It was a thank you for posing. […]

No.10 Red Door Peeling An abandon house in Maryland, U.S.A. was the subject matter of this shot. The door, once providing protection from the elements had become a victim of them instead. Time had erode away most of the paint, yet some remain, almost in defiance. The horizontal flaking of the peeling paint mixed with […]
Breaking Out As the paint flaked from this old barn in Maryland, United States, it seemed to me that they were saying their goodbyes. Time to leave the place they had supported for years. I manipulated the colours to give it more depth and texture to enhance my idea. The old building was part of […]
Progress This is another nod to Robert Motherwell. The rust lines have a sense of movement depicting advancement. The brown and yellow work together against the pitted backdrop to let your imagination create something that is unique to each viewer.

Lines From an old John Deere combine, rust was the main subject of this photo. From scratches accumulated during years of work, the rust had taken a position, a hold, leaving an impressionist imprint. I fashioned an abstract photo that was a nod to Robert Motherwell’s painting style. To purchase/order artwork, please contact Ian at email@example.com.
Angel of Rust This image struck me immediately as a pair of angels hovering, wings spread, as they appear to descend on their subject. I liked the detailed line work around them and the lower lines added continuity to the photo. Rust has an everlasting affect on metal that can leave interesting patterns. It is […]
Buick Emblem I’m fascinated with the art deco style. This emblem from a 1964 Buick reflected this period. It showed movement in the circular emblems contrasted against the straight-line trim. It was a good example of the detail that was taken in the design of such unique extras that were used in the 1960’s. I […]
Green Tractor Rusting away after years of use, I thought this reliable old machine needed to be seen more as a piece of art. I used a watercolor effect to give the appearance as if someone had taken the time to create a painting as an appreciation to its years of hard work. It was […]
Tractor Face Oliver tractors were popular in the 1940’s. This derelict machine was left to rust away in a farmer’s field along with other machines of the same vintage. What struck me with this tractor was the name, Oliver, it was as if the manufacturer had actually named it. So I decided to give it […]
International This L-130 International truck had seen better days. Rust had begun its move to become the main character of this metal. What struck me for this shot was the patina that the rust had left and how almost in defiance the word “International” had remained untouched, almost as a last stand before giving up. […]
