Welcome to
Monica Johansson and NatureFootstep.com
I am interested in nature photography and photo art and travels
as much as I can to find new areas to document.
I have many blogs and below you find links to them.

Still life and PPF

 Click image to enlarge!

Still life in the Church ruin
I guess you recognize my angel by now. I also added the grey stonewall behind her. The rest items is in the church. Different filter added to enhance the surfaces. 

My Costa Rica´n hat and my fan collection. 

Grass and leaves
Canvas 30x40cm. This one I had glued the leaves but the grass is not glued yet.


This is the final one with the grass glued on. It became much darker. And a bit dull. But it is still a 3D painting as the thin "branches" did not fasten to the canvas. So, they are sticking out of the painting. 
I love dry grass so this is something I wanted to try for a long time. I had to paint a little green on the two leaves as the color disappeared in the glue

Night scene mostly

 Click image to enlarge!

Unicorn in the night
I had a small unicorn sticker that I had painted on it´s back. I painted black and white on the canvas and fastened the unicorn on the wet paint. It is small only 12x17,5 cm

Touching
This one kind of just happened. Tempera paint on A4 CarbOn paper and a background pattern in Photoshop


The All seeing Eye in the night sky
I played around with a photo with a spiders web and added an image of a blue glass ball I have.

Sweden is slowly getting back to some kind of  "normal", but there are many new rules for the schools that started yesterday. I hope they will cope with it. 

Take care everyone.

Rains theme this week is Swipe! So, I thought I´d have some fun with working on the photo papers and tempera color. I´m reluctant to buy more canvases as they are overflowing my apartment, collecting dust! The paper sits fine in a file and is quite fun to work with.

Hope everyone is fine. It is HOT over here so I probably stay indoors today. 😓

It is the same figurin in all of them. It is a birthday present from my daughter and granddaughter a couple of years ago. I used it several times for photography.

It´s all about abstracts

Blue swirls
 This one is painted on glossy photopaper A4 with tempera color. 

 Coffee scape!  This one is painted on watercolor paper A4 using coffee and watercolor. 

The oak trees and the sink above are manipulated in Topaz studio and Photoshop

I think Blogger/GOOGLE has a lot of "fixing" to do. Lots of stupid things going on with the program. Makes me wonder if they don´t use people to find the errors BEFORE they go online with it.

Well, abstracts is what I do most of the time. So, not much of a problem when it comes to themes. 

Take care everyone, It is still needed. I am currently waiting for news from my granddaughter. She is on a flight from Queensland to Sweden. Her Masterclass in Marine biology is finished and she can´t stay "downunder" in these C-times. She was happy she was able to fly at all.
