"...the random array..." and a free texture!

"The healing power of the random array ...."

~Heinz Kohut

P.S.  I thought I was posting this to my other blog Original Art Studio.  Oooops!  Guess I do need that second cup of coffee!!   

I composed this piece of photo art for my son, with shots taken of urban elements around Montreal.  The bird and figures were outdoor art exhibits at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.  The stairway leads from one street on "the mountain" (in the center of the city), to another.  I made the composition using one of my textures as a background and finished it with another texture (from my Vintage Manuscripts Set) and the addition of PSE 'poster edges'.

While I'm here, correcting my posting 'error', let me offer you the free texture I intended to post later.  I've called it "Sweet Thoughts".  It contains elements of the texture applied to the composition above.  Please read my Terms of Use (click on button under header) and give due accreditation when possible.  Enjoy!

  5. Great texture Bonnie, and so glad that you did this post by "accident". This is a very interesting piece of artwork. I really like it. I attempted to do something similar, and see that i have no clue what I am doing, but will use this as a "new goal" to try. Have a wonderful day!

  6. Well, I guess we're just lucky, aren't we! Thanks for this texture, it's really lovely.

  7. I like that you have some hard edges on the imported images, I have that tendency to have to blend everything, but I am glad to see that is not always the case. Like the freebie. Cheers
