    Structured Design

    Photomanipulations: dreadful to some, wonderful to others. I'm especially pleased with this one and thought it was worth sharing...based on a photo I took a few days ago.....it's really no better than the original photo but it's definitely a different creature.

    P.S.
    Unlike many "paintings" here, I think works like this look better when viewed in small proportions. The larger view is interesting because you can study the textures, but I think the smaller view conveys more of the emotion.

    It has a metallic patina to it that's really nice, and inside the central flower it looks like the spark of life starting to glow...

    Think about it framed and on a wall in a pretty large format and you will know it works quite well. Certainly better than the photo as good as it is.
    Good job!

    Sandy, Al, Jean, Valerie and Jibes, thank you for taking the time to comment!
    Al, the metallic patina comes from a texture stencil shared over the the supplies thread...I think it's a grunge texture shared by Peter W? I've used it several times over photos and enjoy the energy it imparts.
    Your comment about the spark of life intrigues me....I can't help but think something important happens when all those lines converge....

    Whether it´s a photo manipulation or not, what you´ve created is a very artistic interpretation of the original. Like it! Definitely not "dreadful."
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Wonderful creation Leah. Love it. I'd definitely like to hang it on my walls. Wonderful colors. The photo is great tooc with its narrow depth of field. Did you take the photo?

    I think you made it even more beautiful. Bravo!!!
