Taking a Break

....from my faces.  Sometimes I feel like I've been doing this blog so long, my posts all look alike.  I'm stepping out of my comfort zone here and posting a photo that's a bit more abstract.....a little unusual for me.  As much as I adore flowers and nature,  I've been trying to look at shapes, angles, etc.  This shot was really different....I took it looking through the glass to a multi-level steel staircase structure.
Okay....now that I've posted something out of the ordinary for me, the next image is a still life which I "doctored" with Kim Klassen's "Abstract" texture and the
dry brush filter a couple times.  I think I may have also used the watercolor filter...can't remember.  
Now if you want to look at some faces, take a look at Ruth's newest blog "Tawny Moon Studio".  I do like her mixed media combinations.

I love your new trials, they have come out really well :) and I agree that it's good to get out of our comfort zones, it then brings more to our regular practices too...thank you so much for mentioning my new blog too...I can't stop drawing faces, it's quite new for me, so more exploring to be done :)

Both of your photos today are wonderful Marilyn. I love the first one, it does look abstract, and the colors are fantastic. Interesting reading.

The bottom one is really artistic and something I would buy for my wall. Love how it turned out!

Through the glass is almost what Alice saw. Beautiful.
