For this last week of Lake Q’s Twilight Series I worked at making it look like an old picture postcard. I spat on it a bit and rubbed it in and then scuffed it up a bit with the heel of my shoe!  Aw…well, I did that sort of thing in Photoshop and here’s what happened:

Linking up with Robyn’s Captivate Me Blog for the last week of January’s One Four Challenge. Take a hike over there if you want to join in next month’s round.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. Aw Janis you’ve already published your week 4…! 🙂 Interesting effect you’ve managed to get there — it looks very scuffed up indeed! I love both weeks 3 and 4.


  2. Wow! I absolutely love what you’ve done this week. This does a great job with this image, everything looks right! The style is just the thing for this image. Very creative.


  3. I have to agree with everyone else, week 4 is my favorite. It’s funny how when the challenge is going, you think, I have no idea what I’m going to do for week 4 and then we pull out all the stops and figure what the heck and it turns into everyone’s favorite. 😀
