A Portal to the Stars of Life

A while back I fiddled with a painting I created in Australia which was called “Butterfly Transformation”. I didn’t feel it was quite finished so left it, but this afternoon got an idea of how I wanted to finish it off.

I added in a photo I used in my Autumn Leaves art piece, which is of blue leaves which originally were maroon. I super-imposed these into the centre of the digital image I’d created from my painting, then went to work with PicMonkey and a new plug-in I downloaded today from Topaz Labs for Photoshop which gives you all sorts of stars and different lighting effects.

The result reminded me of opening a portal to the stars of life, hence the title of this piece of digital art.

I’ve been working in a fairly concentrated fashion this afternoon as I rather liked the idea of creating my 500th blog but also because

tomorrow I’m working on two pieces for a couple of friends.

So with that, over and out!
