Vomiting Art - Like a Moth to a Flame

I created this image which I title "Like a Moth to a Flame"; it was based on a challenge of my artist friend, Jim Frederick based on this picture he took of some vomit that was in the parking lot of a 7-11 store that he and another artist, Laura Kerr (aka PaintSlap). Well here you go --- something beautiful from something vile and disgusting.

Creating Art From Trash

This was the new digital image that I created from a photo that I took at an event and the trash that was in the garbage bin. Beauty can be found anywhere.

Planet Abstract

This image was created from the photo taken of Planet Hollywood in England. Today was a day of relaxing, thinking watching television, playing on the computer, napping, eating and just being inside my own head. My friends are celebrating art shows, birthdays, hearing music, texting and facebooking.

View from a bus

This is a creative abstract that I created...
it reminds me of light, viewing the ground from a plane, Miro, and more

In case your wondering this was the original photo that I started with... a view from a bus.

Madame iX - Ladies in Waiting

This was initially created with my fingertip on my iphone using the app called brushes, it is my reproduction on Madame X by John Sargent. After I exported the image from my phone to my computer I worked on further manipulations of the pixels.

I like the simplicity that this image has, but still retains the elegance.

This image to me exudes romance, the red and the texture also give it a drawn and watercolor look.
The diffusion of light on the original image makes it closer to the original by Sargent with the really white skin, or at least as I remember.
Finally a version from my blue period.
The beauty of computers is that you can experiment and create alternative views quickly. I wonder what the masters what have done with the technology if it were available to them.

Project Thinking

This is an image taken on my recent trip to London. Today was a relaxing day... laundry relaxes me. I napped. I ate well. I organized and cleaned. I read. I blogged. Thinking of what my next project should be.

Kicked in the pants by Julie Powell

Well as you can see I have not posted in quite a while... sucked into this whole facebook, twitter, social media, I forget my own voice and stopped blogging. But today I had a unique experience... have you ever gone and seen a movie with a friend who is in a different city? or a different country? Well today after work, I went and saw the movie Julie & Julia at 6pm CST in Houston TX, my friend, Carmen went and saw the movie in Toronto at 7pm EST in Toronto, Ontario, Canada - we texted before the show and then called each other after the show. It was a great show for us hungry for knowledge and wanting to share our voice and experience with others. In a way Julie Powell, inspired me to get back to my blog - I must be disappointing my readers (or at least my two followers)... so now it is back... what project should I attempt and have you my readers around for the ride. So this wake up call made me realize that art and writing do mark time. It is hard to believe that this is the 3 year anniversary of my brother's death. I miss him and know that his spirit was with me during my recent trip to England, Ireland, Scotland, and France. Now, concentrate on my art, my writing and sharing more blog posts. Carmen - enjoy your knitting!
