Photo Art Friday

Pixel Dust Photo Art
 
 
Nothing has changed for me.  I have missed our weekly challenges and struggled with finding other ways to express some creativity.  But, as soon as you came back "Photo Art Friday", I over reacted as always.  I must have made twenty pictures of flowers and then the hard part became paring them down to a reasonable selection.   I'm not saying they are good, but what I am saying is, I had a ball ... so glad you are back, Bonnie !
 
 
 Cone Flower ...
 
 
Calla Lily
 
A Rose in a Vase ...
 
 
The flower of the Yucca Plant
 
The Tulip
 
The Gooseneck Loosestrife
 
 
 
The last is something I have done for a long time.  I always called it my flower art.  I take a flower picture and put it through one of the distort filters, then develop the result into a picture.  I will often see something familiar like a face or an animal, but this time I used the fruit of my Hibiscus plant and just turned it into an abstract.
 
I used pdpa textures on each of these, in some cases more than one and then finished it with different filters.  Three of them I used PicMonkey and one I used Be Funky.   This was great fun ... I'm looking forward to meeting up with old friends and drooling over their talent.

  4. You are in a very ethereal mood today...the images are lovely, as always.
    I really liked the one of the butterly on the gooseneck loosestrife the best, maybe it was the arching of the flower. The composition was very striking to me.

  8. you surely DO play and that play is utterly amazing.

    I love what you've done here and the way I got to feel like a hummingbird or butterfly or just a wondrously winged BEing to dip and turn and play.

    exquisite photo art and an enormously deLIGHT for the eyes and the spirit.

  9. I'm just blown away by your creativity, Andrea!!! It's just bursting out of you! Love how there is as much variety in your edits as there is in your subjects. Love the Calla Lily and the Tulip and, of course, the last abstract!

  10. Oh, I so know what you mean - once you get started there's just no restraint... Love what you've done; there's a lot of playfulness and joy here! And that last abstract really took my breath away... I'd want that printed out very, very lage, framed like an oil painting, and hung on my living-room wall!

  12. Love all of these andrea, but think my favorite ones are the butterfly... maybe the first one is my fave, but hard to pick. Looks like you definitely had a ball doing this. I was out of town during this once a month event, and missed it... but will look forward to seeing you here again in September!
