Day 26

I recently found a wonderful blog called PixelDust that I really enjoy visiting every week.  On Fridays, Bonnie hosts Photo Art Fridays and this week the word was: Hardware. I've been trying to visit more of the people who post their images as well.  I may not have been able to leave a comment for everyone this week, but please know I was visiting! 
I taught a digital collage workshop a couple of years ago and this was created for that workshop.  It's called "Turned to Stone" and was made digitally using a steampunk style of layering various "Hardware" pieces to a stone statue.  A fun piece to create and the only steampunk I've done.  It's a great culture to explore and there are many awesome artists out there who do this style exclusively.  I can't do anything exclusively-I have to be able to spread my wings and explore everything that comes along.  I love new things to try out in my studio and my digital software.  Thus, I am currently enjoying the iphoneography apps but not exclusively.  :-D  I also enjoy my point and shoot camera and my DSLR.  I recently learned how to use my ipod to take better photos and altering them with the apps, but the Kindle Fire, while very limited, can do the same.  Trying to share images between all the resources (different devices) has been a real challenge since Kindle absolutely refuses to log into the Apple store, but of course, Amazon sells apps too and doesn't want to share the customer base.  But, there's always a work around.  Now to find an affordable ipad!  :-D

This is quite an amazing piece. I like your thought process.

It seems every exclusive choice creates the need for "consumers" to BE creative.

Work arounds might BE an answer, in fact HAVE BEEN in my experience, but you know what else I am finding?! I can simply step off the merry-go-round and that is making all the difference.

What a perfect piece of photo art for our theme. I'm wondering how many components went into creating that gorgeous mask. Looks Venetian to me. So pleased you linked up with Photo Art Friday, Cindy.

This image really drew my eye out off everything linked up at PDPA. I am already looking forward to seeing more of your work. This is just awesome!

stunning piece, what fun to play with the steampunk asthetic - like you I find it hard to play exclusively in one genre
