"Nap Time", by Bob Worthy

"To laze on a Summer's day"... two transfera studies of Michael,  by Bob Worthy

Bob Worthy lives in the Northern Neck area of Virginia.  He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in Fine Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University where he is now an adjunct professor in their off-campus graduate program for the School of the Arts.  Bob is a founding member of  Exposure Unlimited, a group of Fredericksburg area artists, founded in 1985, which exhibit their artwork together and support each other's artistic activities.

The above are dedicated in memory of two people the world will sadly miss... Chris Worthy, a photographic artist whose goal was to record the wonder of humanity, and her favorite model, Bob Meadows (pictured above)... a man who loved what he did. The above images of Bob Meadows were captured by Bob Worthy himself when a guest at one of Chris' photo shoots.
*"Making art is a spiritual experience for me; an experience involving both acceptance and acquiescence.  It becomes a matter of trusting and letting go; trusting myself to be the best artist I can be and then allowing myself to be that artist.  The act of creation, while problem solving by nature, is also an act of faith and intuition.  My best art happens when I surrender myself to the creative process and let the art make itself. My work always begins as an inspiration, idea or trigger or just a "flash" that generates an "ah ha" response in me. An image of the finished piece or sometimes just a sense or feeling is my motivation for starting. What results, is not always what I expected to happen.  There are times when the actuality of the finished piece can be unsettling, foreign and strange.  'You know my work never turns out the way I planned it'  is a familiar phrase."        - Bob Worthy
