On-line fun!

I've been taking an on-line class with Cindy Powell at AnArtistsWorkshopRetreat. It's learning how to use Photoshop Elements. This was a photo I took a while ago - just so-so.
Then I put it through it's paces and shazam! So, I couldn't leave well enough alone....

I printed it out on transparency, used alcohol inks, mounted on a wallpaper backing, used copper tape, used more alcohol inks, added iridescent pearl, silver and copper. It looks so much better in person.

If you're interested, I have listed it on etsy.

Frozen Ice Boating?

Very surprised to see folks ice skating and ice boating on the river Sunday. Why you say? Because the river wasn't all frozen and the temperature was about 50. The first shot is at about 2pm. Can you see where the ice ends? The next one was about 4.30pm. Look at the melt on the ice. There is no way I would've been out there!
