...to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free....

20 March, 2011


My dear friend Michelle gave me a great idea in her comment 
on yesterday's moon post.

She said the photos kind of took on a painted look.
So, I took one of the images to Photoshop and
applied "Filters." Several of them, as a matter of fact.

One of the best things I have learned in my life is
how to adapt.  (Got lemons?  Photoshop them!   ;o} )

Photoshop mystifies me.  I like fooling around with "Filters"
but basically have no idea what I am doing.
I just fiddle until I like what I see better than I liked the original.
If you asked me to take the original and re-do what I made above,
I couldn't do it if my life depended on it.
I have seen someone work with 'Layers' and I really aim
to learn how to use them.
Some day when I have a few hours of uninterrupted time, that is.
That kind of time doesn't come easy around here.

So, what do you think, good people?

How have you adapted when things didn't go as you planned??


  1. Love your art- you turned it into artwork!

    I don't know if I adapt...I sadly, think I run.

  2. I try to adapt but am not always successful. Love your art, love your blog!!

  3. Once you get layers, the world is your Rhode Island Red. jp

  4. Well that is so very interesting!-turning photos you weren't that crazy about into something really uinque! Love them!

  5. Wow, those images would make a cool needlepoint or wool hooked rug, if one was so inclined that is! ~Lili

  6. Looks like a painting! Impressed!!

  7. Van Gogh, or however you.spell it!
