Jeff Mayfield captures beauty with both brush and lens. Whether he is
pausing to adjust the "stops" on his camera for a photograph or pausing
to adjust his perspective for a watercolor painting, his works reveal
glimpses and interpretations of artist Jeff Mayfield’s individual journey
through life. His works capture some of the moments and memories that have molded and enriched his life and character. These images present
Mayfield’s personal visual “scrapbook”, but can also be viewed as cultural universals. The artist hopes that his images will spark remembrances of special times in the lives of the viewer.
Recently, I have combined both of my favorite mediums, black and white photography and watercolor. I now create a mixed media painting which starts with a carefully planned and developed black and white photograph printed on 140 lb. watercolor paper. The image is then painted with transparent watercolors allowing the message in the image to be further emphasized through specific areas of color.
"Art uses many mediums to communicate with one's emotions and spirit. For me, visual
media express my feelings, thoughts and ideas.
My work uses the visual arts to communicate emotional and spiritual messages through
treatment of scenes and objects of daily life.
“I hope my art will speak to you."
