Cottage Crew 2012

Well summer has come to an end and fall is right around the corner. I like fall though not to hot and not to cold, just right :) So this is another gang group shot of some inside jokes that have taken place over the years at the family cottage. I tried out a different style on this one and different approach to the background as well. I had fun doing this so I hope the people in this enjoy it and get a laugh :) I wasn't sure which treatment I liked better, the old vintage photo or just the regular finish?

So here are a few backgrounds I did for my very special lady friend's birthday this week. They're of a few places we've been the last couple of years. I plan on doing more, but this is all I could get done in the week. The originals are 11X17 and I got them printed off to hang around our place. My inspiration for these pieces were 2 of my favorite artist Tadahiro Uesugi and Kevin Dart. I'm really trying to understand their methods and use of colors, lines and textures. What to leave in and out for the eye to determine what its seeing. Anyway I had a lot of fun doing these and can't wait to do more.
