FOTD: The Artist Within

Deep inside I have always had an artistic flair.  I’ve done some drawing in the past, and have always wanted to paint. Maybe someday I will.  Until then, I will let the artist within me come out in my photos.  When I see the softness of these flowers, the glimmers and glow of the sun through the petals and the leaves, it reminds me of a beautiful painting.

I think one of these photos would look beautiful printed on canvas.

What do you think?

When I judge art, I take my painting and put it next to a God made object like a tree or flower. If it clashes, it is not art.
Paul Cezanne

God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.
Martin Luther

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
Joseph Addison

The earth laughs in flowers.

Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.
Luther Burbank

    These flowers are beautiful, and any of them would make your wall beautiful, too.

  4. I think the first or second one would look pretty on canvas. If you use Photoshop they have some filters you can play with for a different look also

    1. I recently got photoshop. I still have a lot to learn but I’ve tried a couple of things. I want to learn more!

      1. I started with Photoshop Elements – a little less of a learning curve – however I eventually got hooked on Lightroom. I found it much more intuitive

      2. I subscribe to Lightroom and Photoshop. I think I’m going to take a class so I can get some help figuring it out 🙂
