Is it art or just a figment…of my imagination? Sometimes I wonder. I like to digitally manipulate images, but wonder if it might be art or just… Most of the time I begin with a photo I have taken and alter it to create something more abstract. Sometimes the finished work resembles the original photo, sometimes not. Occasionally I will not use a photo, but create something entirely from scratch using lines, shapes, and colors. Is it art? I guess that question has existed much longer than I have, so I leave it up to the observer to answer.
As for the image I created in this post, it began with the photo shown below. A rather unassuming image to begin with, I created something I liked better than the original. This is an example of the finished work resembling the original photo. Future posts will show this is not always the case.
