Photo Art Friday, March 23rd - 25th

Welcome to Photo Art Friday! 

Last week I was wrestling with what I thought was a bad throat infection or cold.  Just as I began to feel a wee bit better, I was overcome with chills, fever and a night of vomiting, etc.  So it seems I have the dreaded 'flu' virus.  Am still feeling weak, wobbly and somewhat nauseous.  Working in front of the computer screen worsens that symptom ... so I will keep this brief.

First, thank you so much for all your AMAZING submissions last week.  In a window of feeling a bit better, I tried to visit and comment on as many links as I could - BUT sadly I did not get to leave a comment for each one of you.   My apologies.  Hopefully this week ...

The options for our link-ups this week are:

1.  any piece of photo art you choose
2.  a piece of photo art that, without including an actual image of you, is somehow autobiographical

My image uses a photograph of an old painting, a new texture and a bit of treatment in RadLab.  The autobiographical element is that I have three children - two wonderful daughters and one amazing son.







For next week's Photo Art Friday the options for your  submissions are:

1.  any piece of photo ART that pleases you

2.  a piece of photo ART that incorporates the element of a path or a road (in whatever way you may want to interpret that ...)

  20. I think this is the best I have seen from you. It reminds me of a piece I have that is done with butterfly wings. :)
    Have a great weekend.

  25. I am so fascinated with your creation, Bonnie....and I would love to imitate it in some way. No such luck. When I try this particular technique, I find just how little I know about layers in PSE. However, I persevered to this end. ;-) I am so hopeful that you are finally kicking the virus, and that you will recover quickly.
