I am often curious how certain pieces of other people's art comes to be.
Sometimes I start with a particular image and build around it.
Or I might begin working on a background and see what develops.
I have been known to start with what is laying loose on my art table.
That is how this piece came to be.
Only instead of loose bits on the table,
I used some odds and ends in my Photoshop bin.
The background was chosen at random to use while messing around with the cookie cutter tool.
When I popped it into a new canvas, the image was enlarged. I liked it.
The coral orchid in the bin caught my eye.
I wondered how it would look against the rich red background.
I popped it into the canvas. I liked it.
There needed to be something more....another vivid color.
It took only a quick look into my objects image folder to settle on the teal marble.
I was only looking for vibrant color and this fit the bill.
Into the canvas it went. I liked it.
Next I added some light and dark detail. I liked it.
Depth was what was missing,
so I embedded a couple of deeper layers. I liked it.
What to call it? Hmmm. What else?
I named it "Digital Collage".
I love it!
