As I searched through Textures 4 Layers Flickr group for inspiration for this week's challenge I came upon this piece of rust and turquoise paint taken by Abby Lanes. I was immediately transported back to New Mexico, where these colors abound in the land and sky. I overlaid a photo I took at Taos Pueblo, and made a Kokopelli brush and texturized it to look like rust--I think it looks rusty...
anyway, here's my interpretation of the theme. I can't wait to see all the other entries. They are always so amazing and different.
Beautiful piece, Linda!ReplyDelete
Linda, this is superb! I love Kokopelli, and the touch of turquoise in the background is perfection. First glance took me back to my visit to the cliff dwellings of the Southwest a few years ago. Thanks for sharing your pueblo photo and your wonderful interpretation with us!ReplyDelete
