iPhoneography: Working Late
The LA Mobile Art Festival's being sponsored by iPhoneArt.com, one of a number of online communities of artists dedicated to pioneering and promoting the mobile arts.
Of Jacqueline Gaines' moody "Working Late," a commenter on Gaines' iPhoneArt.com page wrote, "It seems a picture of Edward Hopper, the same melancholic atmosphere. A masterpiece, Jacqueline." Wrote another: "Love love love this piece. Perfect composition, lovely tones, awesome texture."
Gaines, who has a background in textiles and book arts, took a leave from painting for a decade due to family obligations, but found her artistic passion rekindled by the iPhone and iPad. "I quickly found that with these wonderful tools, I no longer had to find time to retreat to my studio to work," she says. "Now I can take my studio with me wherever I have to go ... the park, pool, pediatrician's office, school band concerts, etc."
Gaines says she typically spends an average of 15 hours altering, editing, and "artistically interacting" with her iPhoneography images.
