Can you believe it? This will be our last Photo Art Friday for 2012 ... and it's going to be a special one!
You've been asked, for this edition of PAF, to link-up one of your very favourite or best pieces of photo-art - an edited photograph that you would perhaps feature on the cover of a photo book showcasing your work, for example.
Before you post and then link-up your prize pieces of photo art, please read this post about protecting your digital work. You don't want to walk into a gift store and see your image staring back at you from a greeting card ... unless YOU are the one who made the licensing agreement!
I've been busy for the last couple of months making 2013 calendars featuring my photo-art to give as little gifts to friends and family. I'm also in the process of making a couple of coffee-table books to document the work I have done for the year.
As I searched through my archives for the images I wanted to feature in my calendars, coffee-table books and for this post, I realized that there is a difference between 'my best' pieces and 'my favourites'.
My favourites are not always my best, as I'm sure is the case for you too. Our favourites, while perhaps not our 'best', hold that emotional pull or connection that often only we understand. Anyway, best or favourite, I can't wait to see what you decide to share with us this week.
Not necessarily one of my best - but certainly one of my favs. Click on image to enlarge.
Painterly textures this photograph could qualify as one of my best and certainly is one of my favourite pieces of digital photo art for 2012.
Photo Art Friday will return on Friday, January 4th, 2013. Life will be very active for most of us between now and then. I'll still be posting during December, so we will connect before the new year.
Thank you so much for your support, interest and loyal participation in PAF this year. If I could make it happen, I would throw a party where we could all come together and actually meet and commiserate. I have truly developed a warm affection for you all.
For the first 2013 Photo Art Friday edition (Jan. 4th, 5th) you can post any image you choose, OR you can post an image that features a word or words that you hope will inspire and uplift you throughout 2013. (Not to worry, I will post a reminder about the date and theme near the end of December.)
If you are thinking of giving yourself Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 as a gift and are wondering how best to learn the ins and outs of it, check out my reviews of a few of the courses, books and tutorials currently available. That post can save you some time, money and a load of unnecessary frustration!
If you are looking for great textures at a reduced price - all my texture sets are now reduced by 30% when you purchase a minimum of two sets. This special, automatic reduction continues until December 15th. If you like my texture freebies, you will LOVE my for-purchase sets. Why not check them out?
