Another image using a Cris Kirkwood watercolor painting (with permission and enthusiasm of course). So a couple months back my Mom and her husband wanted to take my niece and myself on a lunch cruise. I cringed at the idea of course but begrudgingly went along to not hurt her feelings. It wasn’t cheap by the way. Needless to say it was rather tortuous but I loved being in the company that I was in and some good did come of it. For instance, the cherry blossoms. I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen a cherry blossom tree or just didn’t notice one before but I did on this day and thankfully snapped some shots on my iPhone while cruising down the Potomac. Naturally, when I capture anything of beauty, I have to add something ridiculous, meaningless, and goofy to make it well rounded enough for me to enjoy tomorrow. So that’s exactly what I did. I “spruced” it up.
I’m not very good at blogging, I think it’s because it’s like talking to yourself while doing the laundry. Anyway, here’s some new stuff that I’ve done. One I created using one of Cris Kirkwood’s little water color paintings like I tend to do. I’ll get around to showing more of those because they are pretty bitchin’. The other I used a pencil drawing that I made the other day while lounging around with my dog. It’s actually a drawing of a screenshot of a video of my nephew using the distort feature in Photo Booth on the Mac. I was pretty amused with the result and had to use it in a composite. I call it Bagel Boy. Only a few will understand why.
Another piece I did using some of Cris Kirkwood’s water color paintings and my photography. I’ve been staring at this thing for days trying to decide if it is complete. I couldn’t decide but there’s no rules out there saying I can’t come back and tweak it whenever I want so I’ll leave it at that…….for now.
