First Real Snow '16 3. Post

Snow Trees Week 1

Back to the One Four Challenge!  I thought there was no way I could do this again at this time because I didn’t have enough time but I just found that it’s changed from monthly to quarterly so I know I can do this! Glad to be doing it again!  Unfortunately, I’m out of practice and didn’t keep track of everything I did so far.

Basically, though, I have 3 layers here.  One. saturated straightforward image with a Black& White layer on top.  Then another posterized color image over that with each successive layer adjusted with varying levels of opaqueness and translucence.

Snow Trees Week 2

My first time with the pixler-o-matic app which I learned about thanks to Elizabatz Gallery. I love this retro/grunge version.

Linking up with Robyn G and her Captivate Me blog, where you can see all the participating photographer’s challenge results – a treat to see!

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. Janis, welcome back! I’m so pleased that quarterly works better for you 😃
    I really like both versions of your snow trees shown here with their wonderful textures. There’s something very tactile about both 😃
