Scanner art work created with my own hand on my scanner holding a sparkling snowflake ornament..then covered with a black trash bag.. and still having to reach my mouse with my other hand to scan.. it was a task.. but I am happy with the results.. just a silly idea…but I did it and it was fun!
used pse 8 and fotoflexer editing programs to change the color of my hand, layers of texture and then added the small snowflake affect and faded edges..
created on 12/13/12
“the original scanned piece before editing”


snowflakes, snow, catch, caught, hand, blue, cold, frigid, winter, night, abstract, scanner art, post edited, texture, surreal

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.
