I loved this Sunday Play Date. Never mind I've been playing all weekend with John Mora's rendition of my photo of egret at the marsh
I converted his cave painting into a colorful fabric quilt by using a simple hue/saturation adjustment layer and cranking the colors up loud
When I play with John's imagery I like to make one mandala simply from his patternings, which lend themselves so well to my own geometric reinterpretations. Bird head becomes bird he.art. This could be a very fancy kind of embroidered badge. Girl Scouts would be envious. Ha!

Exploring more of John's quilting revealed a sort of stained glass abstraction

But when I overlayed the image above with a mandala created from a wild purple aster...voila!

A question was raised about taking art from my blog for the purpose of collaboration. The art that I make in cahoots with John Mora is available for your own interpretation. The rest is not. Please and thank you. The Management.
On another note, I really do intend to offer up more Photoshop tutorials in the near future. What would you like me to write about?
