BEST VIEWED IN LARGER VERSION!!!

another rainy day,, so ran outside and picked some different shaped and colored leaves from my shrubs and trees..
decided to give my scanner a chance to become a useful tool for art..
laid out the leaves layering over each other on the glass of the scanner, closed the lid,, scanned and saved to photo shop….
from there I did the following to create this piece that looks painted..06/22/2011

using photo shop elements 2
inverted the colors to lavender and green
put in watercolor affect
added fresco texture
altered the color hue to peach and lavender
rendered with spot light by 75%
enhanced the brightness by 15%
enhanced the contrast by 59%
cropped by 33%
and signed and dated it…

I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.
