The Photography of Richard Laird
Richard Laird and Abstract Logix are proud to present for the first time ever this historic photograph of a legendary music collaboration. John McLaughlin and Billy Cobham are captured in full internsity in this photograph taken by Rick Laird on stage during another electric live performance of the Mahavishnu Orchestra. The 8' x 10" photo will be signed by Rick Laird. See product details below.
The digital art images shown on this site are all hand painted by Rick using Corel’s amazing PAINTER 10.5 software, which is the world’s premiere digital painting program. The other piece of equipment used in this revolutionary artistic process is a Wacom Tablet (see photos) with a Stylus Pen. This allows Richard to execute his own distinct brush strokes on the screen, just as in actual painting on a canvas or other surface. Each finished piece stands as a unique vision of the digital artist.
