A Photo Painting

A photo …

… and a painting.

This is another photo from my lake series of last fall, with the painting based on the photo.

The painting is by local artist Wayne Keefe, and is now hanging in my office.

It helps me to centre when I have particularly busy days.

Have a good week, everyone. πŸ™‚

  1. It’s lovely when someone skilled uses one of your pictures as inspiration for a painting, isn’t it? A few have done that with some of my pics. I’m always surprised at the images they choose, but the results have been lovely.
    This painting is full of atmosphere. Very pleasant to have hanging on your wall.

    1. Yes, very true. In this case, the artist felt that the image needed a little movement other than the water, so he added some birds flying along the shore. At first I was unsure about that but in the end, I like the addition. Many people who come to my office recognise the area right away and take immediate interest in the painting. I like looking at it when I need to take a breath. πŸ™‚

  2. A beautiful interpretation for sure. Amazing how some people have these skills to enhance an already beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing. Allan

    1. Wayne spent a lot of time doing the beach, and I think it’s visually much more interesting than the beach in the photo. I like how he made it be just as important as the lake and sky.

    1. Yes, I like that too. It’s not something that I would have thought of doing, but I’m not an artist. πŸ™‚ I like the effect, though, and I like to look at it when I need to take a little mental breather.

  3. So beautiful photo of summer beach πŸ™‚ and nice that you can have it painted in your office. Take care and have a nice summer day!

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
