Have you ever wondered what the world would be like without the talents and gifts you bring in the form of art? When you look back in history at so many artist whose shoulders we all stand on, you see the many faces of art in form, perception, use of color, black and white, political, women’s art, contemporary, abstract, installations and so on. Art of the years has not really changed just the concept of doing it has evolved into something greater. As we are now headed into a new year what are your goals for your art. How will you expand, and come out of your comfort zone, how will you as an artist emerge into that beautiful butterfly and fly off into the sunset. How will you play with color and do what is not common. Yes, the new year is a time for all artist to emerge into that greatness that you and myself have wondered about. The world is waiting on us to show it something that touches the human soul, as artist let’s not be afraid to explore the unknown with our color, concept and techniques. Let’s expand ourselves to greater possibilities. This piece was originally a photo which was taken with one of those old cameras that used film , you remember those don’t you. I scanned it into my computer and using Photoshop made something different thereby giving me a digital art piece I could frame. My experiment was to print it on different types of paper to see the different effect the paper would have on it. Using Photoshop allowed me to put special effect into the photo that were not there and giving it a more real look. Let me know what you think about it and any comments you might have.
