I’ve always wanted to be an artist that could paint a picture like this one:
But, for whatever reason, that was not to be my talent. Instead, I paint with words (poetry and prose) and with my camera. And if the camera doesn’t do exactly what I had in mind, there’s always Photoshop! The “painting” you see above was created from this photograph:
Nature was the original artist. I chose the portion of the scene that was most aesthetically pleasing to my eye, then framed it with my camera. An artistic filter called “colored pencil” on Photoshop accomplished the painting effect. So, a number of variables and creative forces played together to create both images.
In my mind, both qualify as art.
What do you think?
