#6: Shades of Green

With permission, I took this photo through the front glass door of this studio. The artist paints only in shades of green, what he calls "Cape Light." He has hundreds in this room, the back room, and upstairs. He is primarily a woodworker but decided 30 years ago to take up painting so he could have something to do when he cut off his fingers. So far, his hands are intact.

Processed in Topaz Impressions, Impressionist preset.

#7 & 8: An Old Model

The truck, not the lady. A 1933 International Harvester with wooden floorboards and a view of the ground below. No legs needed.

The antiques shop owner said the truck is a Google Op. It sits on his front lawn; tourists stop and take a selfie sitting next to the mannequin and suggested I pose with her for one. I declined.

Nice use of light here, especially that renegade beam running from the middle.

What could be more appropriate as a subject to run through a paint filter than the studio of a painter? It looks great. I'm enjoying learning about Topaz impressions too, and I usually end up combining the result with the original photo in some way, and manipulating a texture on top. It's fun!

Great shots, Matt. Your eye for photography is rather amazing, and it's been a joy to watch it grow more powerful.

I am sure there are thousands of selfies, none of which have any artistic value. This does. And there are a dozen other ways you can process these to make more art of them.

Really really like these!

#9, At the Brewster Swap Shop

The Brewster Swap Shop, at the Recycling Center, attempts to keep unwanted items that are still usable out of the trash stream and encourage recycling and reuse. People can purchase toys, books, household items such as glasses and plates, for pennies. The income supports local charities; staff are all volunteers. The shop is a "candy store" for young and old.
