February Photo Art Friday

It has been quite a while since I have let my creative flair go for Photo Art Friday. With our recent move out-of-state, I had to curtail my time online. I am back and raring to go… The challenge for this month of February is GRAPHIC/GEOMETRIC/ANGULAR. I worked with a few different photos and could not narrow my choice down to one. So I am going with these for today. In all of them I use my image and then pick a texture from the many choices at Pixel Dust Photo Art.

Photo Art Friday: Open

It’s that special time of the month,for those of us that like to dabble in getting creative with our photos. I look forward to it. You’ll want to take a look at Bonnie Zieman’s photo art for this meme at Pixel Dust Photo Art. The optional theme for today is OPEN/OPENING/OPENED. I love this time of year, when generosity increases in the hearts of mankind. It’s a time to set aside our own needs and look at ways to give to the less fortunate and brighten someone’s day.. Our neighbor’s home makes a charming Christmas image…

2011-065It’s time to display my photo art work for the challenge at Pixel Dust Photo Art. The prompt for this month was SKY. I went through some of my files yesterday looking for a photo to use. This one, that I took in Joshua Tree was greatly enhanced with one of Bonnie’s textures. It is one of many National Park’s that are shut down right now. To view the work of other photo artists, head over to Pixel Dust.

Photo Art Friday

Good morning world! We woke up to a sunny day here in southern California. The air is fresh after a nice rain storm and witnessing another flash-flood yesterday, that was not severe. It is time for Photo Art Friday hosted by Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art. She provides lovely textures for us to pick from to create our art-work. The theme for this month is WATER. I decided to go with my flash-flood photos and this is what I came up with.

Wherever you are at, enjoy your day and the beauty around you. (:

Photo Art Friday

Photo Art Friday is back..I have missed it tremendously! There will be change but it will not curtail the inspiration and for today the prompt is Dream/Ethereal. I had a few ideas and this is plan B. I am very much a creature of habit and that includes me using my very favorite coffee mug each morning and I pretty much drink two cups of coffee. This image represents dreams and reflection. Dreams can take us away but it’s in the doing that gets us there. Today I reflect on this (June 14th) being the day my mother was born. She is no longer with us but the memories live on. On the 15th(34 years ago) I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby-girl. So much to reflect on and to be thankful for and let the dreams flow.

Photo Art Friday

Collage was the prompt for the week at Pixel Dust Photo Art. My ideas did not kick into gear for several days. I had to think of what I had in my files that would work. Besides old brick buildings, vintage items, people and flowers, doors,are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. This is not the first time I have posted pics of them but the one with the quote is what I worked on yesterday. Doors represent new beginnings or closure. We go through many in life and we never know what we will find on the other side and sometimes we need to hightail it out of there for the benefit of our safety…

Photo Art Friday

Friday has rolled around pretty quickly. The prompt for the challenge at Pixel Dust is Graffiti…I had fun with this and should call what I came up with Far Out Friday..I made a mosaic out of a few images at Picasa.224

Then I added this photo..

of which I had already applied the texture Creative Canvas, that has become one of my favorites. I superimposed the images and then went on to Pixlr where I completed my fun with the following. I don’t have any favorites here. It was all about experimenting and exploring. I do believe that some of those that graffiti are artistic, but there is a time and place to share what they do. I added my own thoughts to these.
