An apple a day...

I volunteered to booth sit at the Naples National Art Festival over the weekend.  It's a wonderful way to see all of the art; give the artists a break as well as speak to them about their work.  A win-win situation all around!

I "sat" in for 7 artists.  The photo below shows the amazing sculpture work of Kostas Ulevicius.  I left the art festival excited and inspired - ready to get in my studio and create ART!!

My original photo was duplicated several times; blending modes, texture, brushes and masks added to make this photo special.

Some of my favorite art is the "common" presented from a different perspective.

Very cool art and edit.
