Thank you so much, Maraia! I must decide if I will buy Photoshop after the test period : it is a hopeless effort for me. I return to paper. Is there another software program I should try?
Well, I’m no expert at software, I myself have been using photoshop only for three months and that was the first time I tried working on computer for my artwork. What I can tell you is that at first I found it quite maddening and never thought I would ever like it or produce anything that would interest me. But then I kept at it, I got two books, introductory guidebooks, and soon I realized it wasn’t such a mysterious process. Once you get used to the basic ideas and tools and start experimenting the fun is guaranteed! So I encourage you to go on, get access to some free-photo portals, where you have a wide choice of images (Stock exchange is a good one) and just play, you know how to do it. I don’t even master some of the important aspects yet (masks are still puzzling) but I manage to achieve what I want, and now that I am combining it with my hand-painted Corel drawings, i feel the possibilities multiply.So, go ahead girl, I’m sure we’ll be delighted soon with new and fascinating works by you!
It’s you who are wonderful, Shylie – thank you!
So where did she go? And why did she leave her dog chain behind?Interesting comp – I read a host of images into it that aren’t there – like a cat boat…
Now I can only see a houseboat which has slipped its mooring and the cat watching, feeling not at all badly about tripping Barbie causing her to lose her footing…..holy katz, what an interpretation-starter!
I too keep looking at the dog leash clasp and trying to put a positive spin on Barbie (who must be getting on bit!).I will go for freedom I think… she has flown the coop, put on bit of weight (thank god!); left the cat with whoever held the other end of the leash and is sailing for Europe. Even Barbie… yes even her. Wonderful early morning brain candy Margot. Funny coincidence… I am working today making a cello trolley for long treks through our city and have used one of those dog leashes and clips as the means of cinching it all together. I enjoyed this one a lot, ma’am :-)
This was not spontaneous, therefore, I don’t really like it. I do like the idea of Barbie getting a bit old, jaded and dumpy and living out her life as a recluse on a cruise ship, however! Your comments are always more entertaining than my ‘art,’ and for that I thank you.[ hope your cello travels safely! ]
It is a giggle, no? Thanks, Donna!
Fabulous . . . love the cat!
heh heh! Many thanks … score another one for the Cat
Outstanding abstract work. Love it a lot.
Thank you for the visit, Jean-Luc; I have admired your work, but now I know who is behind the images. Your comments are much appreciated!
Thank you so much!
