Time for the May edition of Photo Art Friday!
You are invited to showcase a photograph you have edited into a piece of art.
If you are new here, you can read all the guidelines on the page Photo Art Friday. Don't be shy. Beginners and professionals are welcome to display their artwork in our virtual gallery. Participants come here from many different levels of experience and expertise.
May's optional theme is COLLAGE. My last post featured several different types of collages - from the simple to the more complex. Any kind of collage (grouping, collection or composite) is welcome if you choose to follow the theme. Of course, you are always welcome to post any piece of photo art.
You will be able to link up your photo art beginning on Thursday at 10:00 a.m. EST until Saturday at 6:00 p.m. EST. Then a 24 hour period will start where you have to come back, review all the submissions, and vote for your favourite. The person who receives the most FAV votes will be able to choose a two-texture set of textures from among these three as a prize.
Am still dealing with bronchitis, so I am pulling a composite work from my archives to share this week. Sorry, but can't recall if I have already posted it here at some point. If so, here it is again! Just could not find the energy to begin even a small, new project. :-/
This urn is an art installation outside of a gallery in Old Montreal and is the only photograph used to create the following collage/composite.
I then took several crops of the urn itself and placed them on the above flipped horizontal image. A chiseled-looking font was used to add some text. Eh voila - a collage made from one photograph.
The next edition of Photo Art Friday will be on June 6th - 7th. The optional theme for June will be:
of or having one color.
of, pertaining to, or having tones of one color in addition to the ground hue: monochromatic pottery.
Personally, I am thinking of several tones of one color rather than just a single color, but you are free to interpret the theme as you choose, as always! :)
