Photo Art Friday

January 11, 2013

The texture offered us to use for Photo Art Friday is called brown rice paper. I had a great time experimenting with it.I am once again using photo’s I took while on the train to New Mexico. These remind me of a vintage postcard I have in my collection. I love the simplicity and subtle color in both of them.I can relate to why Georgia O’Keefe fell in love with New Mexico and was inspired by the landscape.

    Oh yes – your editing has made them wonderfully vintage – taking one back to another time and place. Great work!

    That does give them a painting-like quality.

      Hi Currie, I think while on the train I can’t help but want to absorb what I can.. Have you visited Santa Fe? So colorful…

    At first glance, I thought “hey, this looks like one of those old postcards”. And it DOES! I’m a fan of the southwest (I live in Colorado and travel there) because it has SO many photo opportunities…..for those that SEE! Quite lovely!
