Finger Pointing – October 11th

11 Oct

It’s been a while since I’ve posted and it’s a blessing to be able to quiet my brain and just enjoy the calm and inspiration that comes from browsing through the galleries.

met-handen-600 by aliba2 captured my imagination the moment I saw it in the gallery.  This page was created for a “lend me a hand” challenge.  I love how she took a photo of her hands, scanned and extracted them.  The choices she made in adding elements and brush work have created a striking scene!  Stunning piece of art!

It seems that the coming Halloween holiday has brought out some fear pages and, of course, I couldn’t resist adding a couple of them here.

The first one I saw was Fear by mediterranka.  The use of black and white adds an ominous tone to the page.  Her composition is beautiful with the blended photos, the placement of the word art, and the addition of the greenery and black roses.  Amazing page!

And then, on the same note but a little brighter page, is I Am Scared by chigirl.  The black and white elements create a threatening attitude while the addition of the gold keeps it from being too dark.  Love, love, love all of the elements that she has so perfectly placed on the page!

Moving on from the dark and ominous feelings, we find the delightful Pumpkin in Pastel by Marleen.  Love the mixed media pumpkin and the blended background.  The gray is a beautifully complimentary color to the peach tones in the pumpkin.  This one just makes me feel good!  Love it!

Even though I lived in Minnesota for 40+ years where there are definitely four seasons, I have no beautiful autumn tree photos.  The beautiful blended photo on Caroga Lake by Miki captures the colors of autumn perfectly.  Her brush work and elements enhance the photo and keep your attention on it.  Gorgeous photo, gorgeous page!

As I was winding down my time in the galleries, I ran across Makin’ Art by dvhoward55.  I’m still smiling!  That photo is priceless.  Love the composition of the page and the cohesiveness of the colors which she has taken from the photo.  Awesome brush work under the photo and what a clever place for the date!  A wonderful page to end today with.

Those are my standouts for today.  I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing them and that it has inspired you to take some time to yourself and go browsing in the galleries.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.  If you have a few minutes, click on the image or the title and visit the gallery to see the page closer up.  And if you have an additional minute, please leave the artists a comment.
