Creative Expression: Revisiting Northern Colorado for Photo Art Friday

I'm joining Bonnie for Photo Art Friday. Her theme this week is abstracts ... this isn't exactly as much an abstract as it is a collage/mosaic or landscape creation. She asked that we use her texture Dropped Petals, one other texture, and one or two images.

I went a bit further: this collage contains five images and three textures. I found it fun to do this as it made for a more complete landscape of what I saw on my trip several weeks ago when I captured a pair of Bald Eagles in Northern Colorado west of Ft. Collins. For some reason I was drawn to revisit the eagles and other captures from that trip and meet Bonnie's challenge.

It looks like I've missed the sunshine this weekend, which only lasted a few hours this morning. The grey clouds of a snow storm are rolling in. I guess my weekend pics for next weeks' Walk and Click Wednesday might be white or at least grey.

Textures thanks to Pixel Dust: Dropped Petals, Virtually Vintage, Statement Frames.

  2. I really like this especially as I did a collage of a day by the sea and wasn't sure about it. Having seen your collage I feel happier with mine! Thanks

  3. Love, Love, Love this. Has a very vintage southwest feel to it, must be the colors. Welcome to my world of white and gray for WCW. Although I actually have sunshine in mine for next week. It's a miracle!

  13. such an extraordinarily powerful piece, Lissa. I love your approach. while most everyone saw it as an abstract, you've approached it as more of a mental abstraction. this is remarkable. the collage aspect as well the mosaic is pretty much abstract to BEgin with, I think, so how you've "painted" this is just stunning.
