art imitates life

Posted on February 18, 2011

I've long been impressed with the computer-generated artwork of Ryan Bliss. His scenes can strikingly resemble reality. It took me many views of one of my favorite scenes of his before I made the connection with a photograph I had taken.

There's no suggestion of impropriety here; his picture was created first, and I had no thoughts of it when I was taking photos in a field in 2009. It wasn't until long after that I realized how inadvertently similar the two scenes were. The resemblance is a freak occurrence, but it also shows how talented an artist he is.

It takes a special gift to be able to conjure up scenes so near to those which naturally occur. Those who can do so should utilize their abilities as often as possible.
