Retro Technicolor

A childhood throwback, a brightly colored carousel. Walking around Tours while on vacation in France, and saw this technicolor memory. I then used PhotoShop filters to create artwork. The scenes around the top of the carousel reminded me of the 1st Marry Poppins movie when Bert is drawing on the sidewalk. The title comes fromContinue reading “Retro Technicolor”

Popcorn Seeds

Forced Creativity part 66 I have a silicone bowl and lid to pop my popcorn, which lets me decide how much popcorn I get and cuts out the greasy oil.

Still playing around in Fotor Photo Editor with a photo of a Bison. Below is my starting photo, an American Bison standing in a wooded landscape.

Forced Creativity part 42

I’ve bI’ve been playing around with an app called Fotor Photo Editor (art options), where they take your photo and change to whatever art filter you choose. The only downside is the file sizes are less than 1 MB, so hopefully, I can find an App with a higher resolution. Below is the Lion FishContinue reading “Forced Creativity part 42”
