Al Sunseri became creative while living in California taking photographs of scenic waterways and forests. Moving to New Bern, NC, Al currently works to embellish his prints. After printing the photographs in large format, Al became inspired to alter the photos by hand-painting key elements brushing oil paint on its surface. The embellished photographs are remarkable with the essence of painting adding rich color, texture and dimension, while keeping the integrity of the photograph's composition and subject matter. The final work is then reproduced in print on paper or canvas.
