Photo Art Friday Nov. 30

This is our last Photo Art Friday until the new year.  Bonnie has asked us to select our favorite image to share.  I went back through my archives and looked at so many pieces.  The decision was just too much, so I'm sharing two.  For the first image
I used a stock photo of a mannequin from Morguefile and blended her in with one of my paintings.  I don't know that she is my best work but she is certainly one of my faves.
This next image is one of the first edits I did when I started working in Photoshop.  It reminds me of the puzzle images we saw as children that asked something like how many different (fill in the blank) can you find hidden.  I have my granddaughter's feet, an image of tree roots, an image of a poinsettia, a couple of the Morguefile's mannequins and a sheet of paper from a legal pad.  Again these are blended with one of my paintings.  I call this one "Tree of Life".
Be sure to visit Bonnie's website to see the other entries.  Remember this is the last one until the new year, so get your fix now.

Wonderful! Images to watch, and watch, and then watch some more... Love the colouring of the first - greens are so... full of potential!
Happy Holidays!

Oh Marilyn - I love the intrigue of these sort of composites. You've married all the different elements together so beautifully. I would find it hard to choose too ... since I love green I would probably go for the first.

Thank you for sharing your talents with Photo Art Friday!

I ended up choosing two, as well - it's hard, isn't it?! I love both of these - great pieces.

It is so much fun to use the phoshop to find your inner artist. I couldn't do it with a brush in my hand. Wonderful photos. Valerie
