Calla lily

The start of this one was an image I created for INSTAGRAM. I thought I´d take the pade and draw around the center flower. But it did not stand out. The color was too intence. So I made two different filters and came up with this one. It is too small to make a poster of.

If you want to see the original one go HERE

I am now on INSTAGRAM with two accounts. If you are there I would be happy if you visited me. We could follow each other if you let me know who you are.

Today I was a bit disappointed as I made changes on an image too large. The changes are barely visible.  In the second image I had made it smaller before before I made the changes. It is still subtle, but noticeable. I don´t know this cat but it lives in my area.

From an image of course, it´s me, right?
So far I only see what happens when using different pencils and blendings and no filters used.

This is a soft feather I picked up a few days ago. I treated it with the filter Angled strokes and when  I saw what it looked like I thought, I´d like it as a wallpaper. This is my contribution to PPF   :)

Today I combined two images from Eckelsudde on √Ėland. A place I visited last week.
 It was a misty morning. The land with mist and ocean was treated with underpainting and the bird with angled strokes.

Trying something  Impressionist. Have done something like this before but did not know it was an artistic "style". I´m not educated in art. Just do what I feel the image should become.

To celebrate Mothers in my family

 Click image to enlarge!

© NF PhotoArt 170527

Sent to my grandmother in 1909, she was 5 year old. 

Today, last sunday in May, Swedish people celebrate Mothers day.
This card was sent to my grandmother (my fathers mother) in 1909 on the Ingrid name-day in our almanack. My grandmothers name was Ingrid and her name is written on the card. She was born 1904 so she was 5 years old when she recieved the card. Before she died I was given all of her cards to take care of.
