Photo Art Friday, Oct. 7th to Oct. 9th




WELCOME TO PHOTO ART FRIDAY!





This is the first piece I edited with my new vivid textures (think I used one very similar to Abstract Elements "Splotches").  I did it a couple of weeks ago and don't recall each step now, but I believe I would have generally been using the steps given in this tutorial.  The original photo is a red gerbera.


Let's try an optional, broad 'suggestion' for the photo art next week

If it suits your creative mood, use one of my textures to create the photo 'art' you present here next week.  (I appreciate that many of you have already been making a point of doing so.  It has not gone unnoticed.  Merci!)  So for next week's Photo Art Friday, use one of my textures ... if you can ...

But if you have a piece in mind that does not use textures, or uses textures acquired from one of  the many other great sources out there, that is just fine too

We are serving our virtual sparkling water or virtual champagne again this week.  Do have a glass while you stroll through the virtual gallery.  I've already had a couple while waiting for you!  Bet you can guess which I chose ... (hiccup...hiccough) ...   ;)

  1. What beautiful colors and great texture, I love those red petals. If you want to participate in the tribute just have to tell me and I put a link in my post to yours. In addition to being Canadian you would be phenomenal. Come on, I hope.

  3. The reds work so well together, united by the swish of the splotches :-)

  4. Hi Bonnie, thought I'd join in the fun. I really like the bright cheerful colors and composition of your artwork, and the splatters just make it for me! Have a wonderful weekend.

    PS: I also loved your comment over at Ragzedge on the tarot cards. Very insightful...

  6. Very striking. The texture looks fantastic.
    Makes your subject matter quite different and unique.

    I'm excited because I found an easy to understand tutorial on how to add texture so now I can use one of yours for next week.

  11. Your art is, once again, beautiful.
    I am learning SO much from seeing what others (on the linkup) are doing.
    It invigorates and encourages me to experiment.
    Thank you all.

  17. Thanks, Bonnie, for hosting Photo Art Friday. It's fun to see so many creative works. I tend to stick to more subtle texture work, but I love the vivid reds in your abstract Gerbera!

  18. Lynne, from Ragzedge Arts has not been able to leave her comment, so I (Bonnie) am leaving it for her:

    I love the painterly splotches and the vivid red of your alteredgerbera. Hot yet autumnal in the tones. In fact, the more I look at it, the more I see the tracings of an autumn leaf bursting forth in all its red glory and then gradually fading, breaking up, falling away, in the quieter undertones of your composition


    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Lynne
