Falling apart.

By helenlinda
This is a part of a very cheap contiboard front door which is falling apart on a shop front on Pershore Road in Stirchley.
Actually there is some lovely detail in it and I spent some time bringing this out in a couple of images that I will be uploading.
I think I spent a couple of hours on this, and approximately ten minutes applying the twirl filter to my plums for yesterday's upload. Why can't I work that fast on all my pictures - Oh well, no pain, no gain.
Thanks for looking

It looks more like something that the Tate Modern would be proud to hang. Very nice.

I can see a lady sitting at a table with her arms resting on the table, but unfortunately she has lost her head Smile Carol

I saw a figure in there to with her head behind the frame. The idea is imaginative and thought provoking.

You do find the most interesting pictures in subjects most people would just pass by! Well worth the time spent I would say.

A very strong and unusual abstract. The colours and textures work well together and it has the feel of a very cool painting.

I just love the abstract feel of this with the textures and shapes.
I can't wait to see what else you've produced from this!
Graphic designers must be born with a special gene!

This is outstanding.
The lady is quite obviously loosing her head over something.
This could grace any gallery.

Makes a great abstract, Helen Smile Reading comments above, it does look rather like a headless person sat at a table with arms outstretched! Wink
