COOL

First the deluge, and now the heat.
Some of us in the UK and Europe are feeling it quite warm just now.

So gaze into the COOOOOOOOOL.








I made it from my own photo of wonderful North Berwick on the East Coast of Scotland.







Then turned it into an ice kaleidoscope for even more Cool. 






If you have been feeling the heat, my blogging friends, anywhere, I hope this helps a little.

  3. That looks great, Sheila! Although it was not hot here today, it was windy and about no sun. But I will have a look again when I need to cool down, I'm sure it will help!! The photo is wonderful, too.

  4. It is hot here again and these photos really are very cooling. I'm always so amazed at how you transform your photos and art. I really LOVE that first photo transformation. I feel like I'm looking up into a glass dome. Thanks for the 'cool' feeling!

  6. Sheila, these are fabulous. There is so much detail to look at in both pieces and they are definitely very cooling. Glad I was able to provide some inspiration and thanks for the antidote to the heat. Jx

  7. Jackie (above) provided the inspiration by posting a marvellous hot-coloured artwork (do have a look), and I commented that she might make a cooler one next, to cool us down, then thought "Why not do it myself?"

  14. Sheila, these two coooool blue spheres are wonderful! I love the magic of computers, and the clever way that you use photo-editing! The second sphere is so intricate, and without seeing the first, you would have no idea how it was created. Thanks for sharing with us.

  15. Sheila it's amazing what you have managed to produce from the photo, the first one is especially good then I take a look at the second sphere and think no this one is better. It never ceases to amaze me how you can for example in this instance take a fairly normal picture and produce a very clever work of art. All of your work is very pleasing to the eye, you should definitely branch out professionally.

  16. Interesting work ...i bet you used much self discipline to create it too:) Love the big circular abstract - and it does look very icy and cold. It is cold here where I live now...but never icy:)
