Spring, in some parts of the world, is knocking or beginning to knock on the door, She’s ready to begin her show. I’ve said it on numerous occasions, while we here in Northern California don’t get a true winter, it never stops me from celebrating the return of Spring and nature’s rebirth.
The bright orange blossom above is NOT a springtime flower. I mean, maybe it is in some parts of the world, but I took this photo near the end of 2015 because of course it made me think… of Spring!
Like a number of shots on this blog, the mad scientist in me needed to tinker and recreate. For this one, I used a ‘glass paneling’ effect. I wanted to give the impression of an ‘Autumn Bloom Under Glass’, which is the name I gave it over at my FAA site. I’m slowly building an entire gallery of pieces based on this effect.
Be forewarned, the piece over at FAA contains a blue background; the original color of the sky/background that day. My continual tinkering with this piece led me to a few color adjustments… greenish-grey backing for blue and a little more saturation on the orange.
Here’s hoping Spring is in the process of knocking on the door near to where you live.
