Thistle Seed

in Art

My avocation is photography and art. Happiness for me is when I can combine the two. A favorite tool of mine is FotoSketcher, it allows me to transform photographs into images that express my feelings. When just recently a new version was announced I had to see how it can aid my efforts to communicate in photo-transformations.

I reached for some photos in my archives. Photos that were quite nice on their own, but didn't quite express the joy of the occasion. This photograph of a thistle seed head, spreading the delicate, light, fragile seeds into the world, allowed me to create an image by replacing the real setting with a universe of forms, barely noticeable, but subliminally powerful.

Robust and confident the plant sends its delicate seeds into the uncertain future. Let us take cheer.
