The topography of stucco

Stucco has valleys and mountain ranges. With a small flashlight I have been painitng the tetons of stucco with light. The frustrated painter in me has come completely to the surface. Photographing the same stucco over and over. With each iteration I work hard to make each exposure different. The intent is to make each side of the mountain peak of the stucco to have a different or complementary color. The topography of the stucco vibrates with the closely placed color. Pointillism revisited in a stucco canvas through a photograph. 

Fall 2012 "I've been shooting the same 24" x 36" space of stucco for the last 6 months" 

The images start as black and white records of color, and then the color records are combined in the same manner as the Los Angeles images are fused together.
