I truly think that there is more beauty in imperfection than perfection, for it is the imperfect things that truly make us beautiful. --me

Purple Clover - Watercolor

Another image that I liked when I took it but once I started working with it realized that it was not as I would have liked it to be. After playing with some of the filters in Photoshop I really like the way this looks. I always wished I could paint but for some reason or other I have never been able to connect my hands to what I see in my mind or for that matter in a photo. Now I have found a way to "paint" on my own.

You definitely DO have a way to paint, and the results are fabulous. It reminds me a bit of Georgia O'Keefe. Her flowers were normally larger-petaled, but just the big giant thing of color in the center makes me think of her work.

I love what you’ve done with this … and suspect playing with the ‘filters’ in Photoshop IS an artform all it’s own.
Hugs and blessings,

I love these "painted" photos!

Looking at that flower image without reading your commentary, at first I thought it an excellent rendering of a clover, like wow. Then I read further and am thinking, hmmmm. I dabble with watercolors, and find I sometimes get bogged down with figuring out how to make an image real, but not real. Maybe I should take your idea and play with a digital image first. Very pretty digital "painting".
