. . . painted a photograph


Grain Elevator Abstraction, 18" x 18" mixed media on canvas

This painting was inspired by another one of my photographs of the side of a grain elevator. It came together so quickly and easily, and it looks a lot better in person. However, I'm not quite done with it. . . I want to fix it up a little bit.Check out this link to see the original photograph that was tweaked with photo-editing software:

I used to have Photoshop on my old computer -- it came with the scanner I used to have. I don't have PS on the new computer, so I have been using Picasa, as well as the editing software that is available on the Flickr site. I'm cheap, I don't want to spend the $$ for the photoshop program, so I'll probably wait and buy some piece of equipment that comes with PS.

This painting stands up so well on its own but to see it alongside the photo makes it an even better treasure.
