In Your Heart 1

Heart’s Desire

Continuing my series of blended photos, this week I present three versions of an image for your perusal and judgement.

The first one, above, has the figure almost totally encased withtin the stone, with the heart-shaped hole acting like a window to the woman.

Last night I decided to play with some old pics taken with my previous camera. These were smaller sized photos, with quite a few slightly blurred, hand-held selfies. I wanted to challenge myself to see whether I could resurrect some life into them.

I cropped this one and layered it with a landscape I shot recently. I then did the same with the photo below.

Last weekend I went up to Gabriola Island for a wedding. While having breakfast I couldn’t help but photograph these luscious hydrangea blooms that were spilling out onto the ground in a riot of blueness!

Great weekend to all!

Chia Comics – My New Career?

I was recently invited to participate in an unusual art show, one that features comic covers.  In this show, every artist could exhibit up to three pieces and they had to be 8.5″x11″, unframed. Now comic covers are not something I ever do but I thought it would be a fun challenge.
