2010 BEST OF DOMESTIC ART CALENDAR
Taking pictures of things that I find around the house and turning them into something entirely different in Photoshop is one of my favorite pastimes. The original photograph is of a small statue, a head composed of mother-of-pearl fragments. I broke the side of it off years ago, but held onto it (sometimes being a pack rat DOES pay off). I posterized the head and replaced the background with my own digital paint brush creation in order to match the desired style.
