Oh, Look! I Made Some New Art!

Apparently, I can’t just stay in the CrossFit box all day, or even workout every day. Since today’s a rest day, I thought I’d post some new artwork I made.

I’m not really sure how I ended up with this piece, but it sure is colorful:

This started out as a photograph of some clouds, I think. I was tired and didn’t write down the steps, but I remember it involved multiple layers flipped and mirrored, various blend modes and some kind of hue/saturation type adjustment. I liked it so much, I made a wallpaper out of it for my monitor.

Then there was this one:

Again, I started out with a photo of clouds, fiddled with it some, and this happened. I love the watercolor-like effect, more stain than painting. Not sure I could ever recreate this.

Since today is a rest day (if you workout, you’ll understand), I need to find other things to do. Here’s my list so far:

  • laundry
  • shopping
  • make something (art, craft, sewing… something like that)
  • eat
  • stretch – LOTS of stretching, because I’ll be sore tomorrow
  • take the kids to the farm
  • pick kids up from the farm
  • fix dinner for the family
  • walk the dogs

Well, I guess that looks like plenty to keep me busy for a while. I guess it’s a good thing I have a rest day on a holiday. I might get a few things accomplished today!
