A Big Spoon and Blue Rooster

etsylighterspoonpaint_DSC5253

This image features the newly designed Walker outdoor gallery in Minneapolis.   I framed the shot to include the ‘Spoonbridge and Cherry’  by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen and the ‘Cock’ by Katharina Fritsch.   The painterly look was created with the help of Topaz’s Impressionism filters.

This is my first image with this painting filter.   It’s a lot of fun to use and offer a lot of variety with paint brushes, stroke lengths and textures.

Kind Strangers

etsy4x6bwwindowlv9995051Kind strangers,

pockets of nice talk,

big eyes, pretty face,

sad, a world of wants,

spent time tooting your horn

to kind strangers.
