As in life, we are in art, always becoming. ~Wanda Montgomery
This week's prompt for Photo Art Friday is "still life". I chose a photo I took of three tiny glass vases with baby's breath in them. I used Bonnie's "Splash of Gold" texture at Linear Burn/80%. I also used her "Mauve Threads" texture at Hard Light/100%. These two textures brought so much to my very neutral photo - I loved the results! I also put it through Radlab several times to tweak it. PSE makes me fearless...I love that anything I do can be "undone" with one click if I don't like it. It gives me permission to try anything with no repercussions. Removing that fear opens up so many possibilities and my creativity has free reign. Now if only I could become this fearless when painting on paper! Gah...I need to work on that. My fear of making a mistake there really holds me back.
The next week will be very busy with Thanksgiving looming...we have company coming and I have lots of prep and cooking to do. I may not be here as much until after the Thanksgiving holiday. Thank you for stopping by!
