My Garden in a Globe

May 23, 2013

One of the blogs I enjoy is As iAge where Margie shares her beautiful photographs.  She just recently also shared a really neat Photoshop Elements trick which I’ve not seen.  Check it out!

It’s unfinished.  I got so far and then couldn’t go further because there were things I didn’t like.  So I just doodled around it.

Okay, so I’ve been away for a while trying to kick-start some creativity from within me. Unfortunately, it has not been as successful as I would like.  In my whole life I have only done two (oil) paintings, and those were decades ago.  One was a portrait and actually turned out quite successfully.  The other was a fairly good knock-off of a photograph, which is a no-no because it wasn’t my photograph.  That went to the curb and was immediately picked-up by a dumpster diver.

I recently attempted to do something using acrylics.  I chose acrylics because it’s an easy clean-up.  This piece is to cover a fuse box on the wall of a basement office, so I chose a topic giving the sense of looking out of a window.

As I look at it, I see lots of places that need improvement which I won’t list here.  He loves it because it’s was done by me and for him.  I would like some feedback from others, too.  Please let me know where you think I could have done better.
