Lots of times I start something for one of these challenges and post it on the Fast Friday blog just to have something started. If I feel it has good bones, I might take it further until I feel it is a good composition. This was one of those pieces. It was done for the curvilinear perspective challenge for this month and I was the host.
I added 2 overlapping layers of circles done in perspective as the original photograph is. I pulled some of the color from the surrounding batik into the photo transfer and pulled some of the light colors into the batik. I like the depth and perspective this finally has.
My word for 2011 is Persevere….this piece is one of the reasons I chose that word. It is too easy to just chuk it into the trash, but really nothing is a failure if you are willing to take the time to analyze and work with it. Just my quarter on the subject and it works for me.
