. . . made digital collages
because yet another day has gone by without anything getting done in the studio. But Picasa has updated its collage feature and I did spend some time messing around with it yesterday. I took one of my favorite photographs and collaged it with another photograph of some weathered wood siding. The above picture is the result. Of course I fiddled with it a bit for color and intensity, etc.
As I drifted to sleep last night, after spending a lot of time looking at my stash of photos on the computer, I had the idea that maybe I could paint some of these photos, or use them as a starting point, at least, and then also see if I could recreate the same photo in a smaller collage. I am interested in testing what results I can achieve using paint as opposed to what effects are more suited to collage.
Okay, all you lurkers out there. Today is the last day to send in your request for one of my collages that I'm giving away to celebrate 365 days of continuous blogging. Tomorrow I will announce the winner.
