I've been playing with glitter and from one image I have been able to crop an endless supply of fantasy backgrounds. Here are three.

Suggestives. I like for themselves. They need nothing more.

Hi Enug......These are making me want to watch Disney's Fantasia, Absolutely love the colors in these....
Are you quite sure you weren't a background cell artist with the studio back then in a different life.....
Very nicely done.....
Take care,

Did your daddy take your T-Bird away?

Well no matter, let him be that way. . . You have some superlative abstracts here that you can have fun fun fun with. As was mentioned by Ostogar, terrific as final paintings unto themselves. Your sense of design in these is most smashing. I'm inspired. Sure, they would be great backgrounds, but the uses could go on and on. Love the color and the size relationships. Really cookin'!

It really was fun as I zoomed around the original image and stretched and pulled with the transform tool, endless fairy vistas opened up. I don't really see a use for them personally but I thought I would show some of the magic hidden in ArtRage. Glad you all liked them. :D

Really nice! I did this with a few trad paintings I didn't like and have them hung. A different perspective really brings out something so much better than the whole and creates a kind of abstract view the mind can play with.

This was the starting image.


And the result.....

Very clever! Like wandering around in shallow rocky tide pools and coming upon little scenes in nooks and fissures alive with sea anemones and muscle shells and seaweed and so on, all very bright and shiny because they're under a bit of shallow water.

Whoa!.. be careful you seem to have the mind of an abstract painter, careful or you will slip into that world, and it is a very deep rabbit hole indeed!. Love the color and each one is a jewel to get lost in... wonderful work here.:cool::cool::cool:

Thanks again Mr.Akey.

gxhpainter, I wouldn't mind at all if I slipped into that hole it might give me more of an understanding of abstracts. You seem to have so much fun with your paintings.

It's like fractals - you can go right in and find interesting places.

I just realised I'm a figment in Enug's imagination!


I'm emulating your style, without even knowing it.

I told you recently - we're possibly long lost twins.
DNA testing please!

:D :D :D

Very cool thread, June, thanks for sharing it with me. :)

Thanks Rachelle (and Hildee) when you mentioned stretching when describing your technique, I remembered that I had done it also on these.
