Simple Still Life for August
So for the Simple Still Life here is the picture that is what we are to work with. I wasn't immediately interested enough in it to try a fiber version. So, I used the free photo editing program Irfanview with a filter program I bought called FiltersUnlimited. I'm not lucky enough to have Photoshop, so this is what I have to work with.
The first image reminds me of the kaleidoscope/mandala quilt that I did for my husband's office, the "Ayn Rand Mandala". In other words, I could actually make this into a quilt!
This one would be harder to do in quilty fashion, but I love the way the mirrored images make new shapes, like the heart which is part of the ceramic pot.
Then lastly is a swirly whirly image that looks like the plant is getting taken off in Dr Who's Tardis or something. This would be more fun to paint this time of image I think.
So I'm not sure if I'm done done yet, as I may actually translate one of these images into a small quilt, we'll see how the rest of the month goes!
