A Welcoming by hummbuzz A Welcoming by hummbuzz
In my continuing escapade to explore new avenues of creative framing for prints of my images, I have recently (while at home healing from a shoulder injury) picked up a paintbrush and have begun experimenting with textural background painting.

I have two friends to whom I need to give my humble thanks for their creative inspiration:

:iconmarkus43: for the concept of extending the boundaries of some of his own photography using painted media.

:iconebbing-gale: for the magnificent antiquity of her textural mixed-media images.

Thank you.

Oh yes, it's long healed.  Thank you, Teresa. :heart:
But it gave me the opportunity to experiment with something new that I may not have tried otherwise. :boogie:

Sometimes it's amazing how an inventive framing makes the picture truly come out of the frame toward a beholder. :)

you always summarize powerful auras inside your assemblages. it's very interesting..as some part of archeologic research or.. well, as you describe it well together with inspiration of your friends. p.s. it is good to be creative and forget pain. one day,, i danced with injured leg - i had one leg, but it was interesting exploration. as your rounded shoulder - how it was to work with such arch!? you don't need to answer this question.. i just want to share more with impact of work that you created with such precise will. : )

Thank you, Kirke.  The impetus to finally try this was because painting was something I could do entirely left-handed (it was my right shoulder that was injured). But you are right...when inspired, one does manage to forget pain (of many kinds).

I always have my eyes open for weird little odds-and-ends, and rusty bits-and-pieces.
And friends help out occasionally. (The 2 drill bits I used here were a gift from a friend). :aww:

If you don't have to don't. We had no choice as the door was on a slant and would no longer latch. Oh the joys , I'd rather be creating.

I want to thank you, Markus, for the beautiful images you created, with photography and paint, that got the hamster wheel spinning in my head.
I have been thinking about them since I first saw them, and finally got the courage and was given the opportunity to try one of my own.
