This piece was, to some extent, a glorious digital version of throwing paint at a canvas and swirling it around with a palette knife without any idea of what, if anything, was going to come out of it! I layered several images and textures of my making and one from Kerstin Frank. I played around for hours changing blend modes and transparency, lightening and darkening, adding and deleting, colouring and de-saturating — you name it, if there was a Photoshop tool for it, I used it!

The faint type you can see through the flowers is a vintage theatre programme from my collection. The flowers are from Vintage Art Download and wildly distorted from their original shape. Who says they have to be recognisable flower-shapes?

Take care and keep laughing!
