Today's photo is a wild violet with a little digital twirl added to the background. I love this effect because it uses the natural colors of the image to make the twirls. I like to think of it as the energy of the violet with its soft colors and delicate swirl. This effect does not work with all photos, but it is delightful when it does.
I've been working on something a little different recently. This technique is called "twirl art" and is made in photoshop using a photograph as its base. This image was made from one of my photos of the gardens at Sarah's House of Maine, a cancer hospitality house in Holden, Maine.
This is the original photo used as the base. I especially like the results as I think it expresses the heart of Sarah's House. It reminds me of gentle, healing energy.
If you enjoy my work, please share it with friends who might enjoy it too.
