... a little flower arranging ...
Hi my lovelies. Hope all is well with you on this last Monday of June, 2012. It's a holiday today in my little part of the world, so we plan to take things slow and easy today.
I have done a little flowering arranging, however. Here's the result:
Have you had time to think about this week's Photo Art Friday challenge? The optional challenge is to showcase a photograph that you have edited to look like a painting. Don't worry if you don't get what you want on your first try. It's usually during my first attempt that I see what will work and what won't with the particular photograph.
First attempts are like opportunities to gather materials, assess how they work together, decide on your approach, etc. Perhaps you then just have to tweak your first attempt, or perhaps with the ideas and experience gained on that first attempt, you want to start over. Then again ... maybe you are one of those fortunate few who get it right the first time, every time. I'd love to meet you ... and I probably wouldn't like you! ;)
Can't wait to see all the paintings that will be hung in our virtual gallery! Thanks in advance for your contributions to come and many thanks for all your previous contributions. I know it entails a lot of work to prepare for our little party. Your efforts do not go unnoticed!
Are you keeping all your photo art in a special file? Have any of you actually printed any of your pieces to hang, sell or gift? Seems a shame to have all that beautiful work tucked away in the digital ether.
I have created a file of work that I think is print-worthy and have invited some friends and each of my children to peruse the file and select a piece they would like to hang on their wall. I then have them printed, per the individual's preferences, and give them the work as a gift. Better than shopping and putting a dent in your bank account don't you think?
