“Art is born in attention. Its midwife is detail.” ~ Julia Cameron, American artist, author and teacher
Prompt: What does attention reveal?
So the iCreateDaily for Creators challenge for today was about paying attention and noticing.
I started by taking a couple of photos of tissue paper balls (in shades of pink, for my newest grandbaby, coming this spring).
After playing with them in PicsArt, I really liked the one below, turned sideways to create an ocean and sky at sunrise. Then I paired it with a perfect quote.
“This morning the sun made me adore it. It had, behind the dripping pine trees, the oriental brightness, orange and crimson, of a living being, a rose and an apple, in the physical and ideal fusion of a true and daily paradise.” ~ Juan Ramón Jiménez
Am I cheating by using technology? It does help me to create beauty inspired by a real object in life. If that’s not art, what is?
