Recently, I have been experimenting with layering different textures over a photograph to create unique looking images that have an artistic feel.
In this image of an abandoned house, I took a photograph and over laid it with 2 transparent textures. One is kind of a stained concrete wall and the other is one I made myself. Buried in the debris of this old house was a copy of "Collier's National Weekly" of August 25, 1945. I used this as another texture.
Abandoned houses are a favorite subject of mine. You always wonder, who used to live there and what was their life like living in past times. By including the copy of "Collier's" in this picture we may have gained some insight into what the tenants of this old house found interesting.
I'm looking forward to having this printed. I just can't decide between framed or gallery wrap canvas. Any thoughts? You can click on the image for a larger view.
