“Pink Dogwood Blossoms” – Ancaster, Ontario

Pink Dogwoods

“A fine work of art – music, dance, painting, story – has the power to silence the chatter in the mind and lift us to another place.”
― Robert McKee

I could not resist posting one more dogwood image before the season passes. The image above was transformed into a painterly image using Topaz Impressions software in Photoshop. I can’t paint well and this plug-in allows me to create images in such a way as to satisfy the painter trapped inside me.

For me, it’s about how the image or moment made me feel and I try to convey that feeling through my images, be it a photograph or, as in this case, a painting or likeness to one.

How do you feel about this treatment?
