When the photo isn’t good enough: create art

Well, art is in the eye of the beholder. This wouldn’t be the first time that I have been turned away at an art show.
But here, for your viewing pleasure, my little moth: As it was on the wall.
And here, many hours later, as “Moth Balls”:



  1. Hi Ludwig, that's a great title which aptly fits your art.Just how did you create this colorful piece?

  2. The primary tool for these attempts at art was "picture Tools" in Microsoft Word 2010 and the adjustments in Live Photo Gallery. The little balls were created with the "Mosaic Bubbles" effect after boosting and changing colors. The Background Remover tool also played a major part. As I was playing around with numerous effects, the exact sequence or path to the final image is "lost to history". Thank you for the kind words.
