The owners of the house where i captured this whiskey barrel planter live right around the corner from my mothers home. While i’ve never met these folks personally i’ve always admired the tasteful work they’ve done restoring the home they live in.

Original photo captured with my Kodak Easyshare Z980 and processed with Corel Paintshop Pro Ultimate Photo X2 working with layers and overlapping an original copy with an altered copy.

Live like there is no more tomorrow…
Love like you have never been hurt…
Dance like nobody is watching…

    Beautiful work Dennis, the blue in this kinda looks like a creek.I’m reall yliking your new style!! :-")

  • Thank you Tania…what appears to be “blue” is actaully a blacktop driveway. I agree though…it does sorta look like a creek bed. If i could i’d turn that driveway into something that actually looks like real water. This is one of my best works to date. Glad ya like it…thank you
