Coneflower Abstract


Sometimes I feel like a mad scientist in photoshop.  BWHAHAHA!

This image was created from a photo of a coneflower.  It’s amazing how one can create things digitally to look like they’ve been painted.  Trust me, I am terrible with a paint brush but with the magic of photoshop I feel like I can paint!   I’m no Cezanne or Monet but hey, it’s still fun.  🙂
