This image started as a photograph of some reddish-brown vines, green weeds, bright yellow/green paint spilled on the broken pavement, and shattered blue glass scattered across the area. I was attracted by the color fields and the texture of the blue glass.
Unfortunately, the areas of color were not clearly defined by a change in values and the scene was flat, despite the colors. This abstract is the result of my experimentation to find a solution and “save” what was interesting about the original scene.
And very successful it is!!
Hey, I might be coming to visit (and meet!) Bonnie sometime…Hope I can meet you too.
Thanks Jala. Coming to St. Croix?! That would be great. I know Bonnie well, so I’m sure a get-together could be arranged!
Nice. The image almost looks like a microscopic specimen slide interpreted by Tiffany glass blower.
Thanks, razzbuffnik. There really isn’t much sense of scale is there? I like the transparent layers, like glass or poured resin.
That Razz is on a roll of inspired descriptions! I’m gonna pretend I thought of the Tiffany glass blower part! Very nice, Don!
Thanks Pat! Yes that Razz is on a roll. Now we need to keep him going.
Yep, to St.Croix. The Husband and I have been invited by Bonnie! Don’t know when yet, though–I guess winter or spring. We’ve never been before.
Hey that’s great, Jala!
