Art Creations Friday and Friday Foto Collage

To end the week, I'm posting two collages today; then I'm off to enjoy other pursuits this weekend.

Art Creations Friday: Gentleman's Photo





original image

We were challenged to use a photo of an "older" gentleman. I thought he might have a fantasy of being a Cary Grant type, so I placed a "younger" version of him in a publicity photo for the movie Charade (from Google images). That's actually an image of Cary Grant's hair, cut and pasted digitally onto our gentleman. Audrey seems to be doing a good job pretending his mustache isn't tickling her cheek.

Friday Foto Collage: For the Birds



We were challenged to use the originals of some bird images (provided by Peggy Gatto) in our artwork. I made three of them into "Zetti" style birds, heralding the (hopefully not too far away) arrival of spring. Image credits upon request.
