Wordless Wednesday - almost




I have always wanted to be able to paint something that was wall worthy. However, painting is definitely not where my talents lie. In an art class in college I pulled A's and B's on my drawings but once the painting portion of the class started I struggled to make C's. All that to say that I love that I can take my photos and have the computer turn them into oil paintings like the one below.

The "painting"-



The original-

We are both "almost" wordless today. How do you do that with the painting?

Mojo said...

Okay, I'd have to ask... why not just frame the original?

I know what you mean about the painting wish though. I was always frustrated by it. I knew what I wanted to put down, but for whatever reason the idea never quite made the translation from brain to hand to canvas.

So... I took up photography instead!

I'm with Mojo! I would have framed the photo. But they're both very nice.

I am a better photographer than a painter but that isn't saying much. I will keep trying to do both.

I am going to echo everyone here and say that the photo was "frameable" as well... either way, STUNNING image!
