Awhile ago I BEgan to make some changes in my art. Lately I have been inspired by Photo Art Friday to come back to some of my paintings with new eyes. It's nice how that works. Really nice...
BElow is a detail of a painting called Broken. Broken was very different BEcause I often use a LOT of colour. This was very colourless, save for a bit of red in the abandoned car's rotting body.
Another painting I made at this time I called Remembered. Again, the colour that was LACKING was what I was focused on. I was responding to an encouragement to make a painting that reflected loneliness.
It was actually a challenge for me to see through such dull and lonely eyes. To leave colour OUT. To convey a whole mood that was different from where I usually went.
Yet it was also wonderfull and inspiring.
For this edition of Photo Art Friday I took these two paintings and brought them together using PSE8, several pdpa textures, Picasa, Picnik, [that remains] and my own willingness to BE surprised.
I know there will come a time, somewhere down the road from Here & Now, where I will see this effort with a smile similar to the one which Broken and Remembered brought me this week. This is what I love about this opportunity to BE prompted, inspired, and invited to share my photo art.
Thank you, Bonnie. You have blessed me and your Photo Art Friday is a gift that just keeps on blessing me.
