Photo into Painting

I can't seem to stop playing around with textures. Here is the before shot:
...and here it is after I added a canvas texture to it:
...and then another layer of something...I forget...that made it a little darker.
It's interesting to me that I can take a simple photo, which was pretty "eh" and turn it into something with a mood, you know? Pretty cool stuff.

Wow Sharon, it's magical what you can do with your photoshop!! Everything looks fabulous!! So glad to hear that you did well at your show. The show I did had very low attendance. There were so many talented artists but not enough people coming through. I did get a chance to really get to know the other creative's which was very nice. So I made some great art friends. Hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend!

Your photo's are gorgeous!! I just bought a new camera and am charging the battery as we speak and cannot WAIT to use it!
Yes, I'm totally serious on the slipcovers! Email me at kritt17@aol.com. I have two small scale chairs that I love (because they are small and a great shape) but I am tired of the chenille that I reupholstered with. I just want to be able to "change"! :)

You are an artist in so many media. The original and the manipulated photos are all gorgeous, each in their own way, each creating a different mood and evoking a different emotional response. Beautiful.

Gorgeous pictures Sharon.
Congrats to your DD with getting out of the braces. I had mine when my daughter had hers. Only she was in them for 2 years, and me for 4 1/2!
It's so GOOD to get them off!
{And yes, she does look a bit older :) }
Where's the Christmas decorating??
