what a little digital processing can do ...

This piece of digital art began with the photograph of a white cleome in my garden.  It was processed it in Photoshop with a texture of mine made from 'brushes'. 

If you would like to try experimenting with using textures on your photographs, you need not look far to find some free fine art textures.  I offer many for free downloads on my other blog, Pixel Dust Photo Art.  Just click on my Free For You here or when you visit there.  :)

Hope you are all finding a way to enjoy summer and the many simple pleasures available to you, in spite of the distressing news coming at us from around the globe.  Be well.

P.S.  I am sharing this image with dear Lisa Gordon's "The Creative Exchange".  Everyone is welcome to share - click on her button and check it out.  Oh, btw, Lisa's photograph in her Monday post of The Creative Exchange uses one of my textures.
