After altering the flower pictures in all of the ways I could think of the thought occurred to me that there must be a way to do something useful with the unmowed grass and the weeds as well so I isolated those areas of the photos and went back to work with an assortment of filters and other things in the paint program.
Why would I bother? Sometimes it's just to see how far I can push an idea but today I'm looking for designs that would adapt themselves well to neckties and no one will ever guess just looking at them that the design was inspired by nature...although I think the guys would like to know that the whole thing started by NOT mowing the lawn.
It's surprising the number of colors and effects you can create with the computer, isn't it?
I think I'll be "playing" with this idea a lot more through the rest of the season.
Who knows?...I may try it with the veggies too.
