Editorializing

Our latest challenge in The Studio was to create a photo that is editorial-ish.  I was pretty stumped until I went to bed last night and somehow came up with using the daffodils I had purchased yesterday at Trader Joe’s in this still life.  I had been thinking of using one of my little Adirondack chairs in a composition, so it all came together in about 10 minutes.  Adding the text took longer- way longer- as I always have to try out every font before I’m satisfied (or tired of it . . .).

I took the photo below a day or two ago, and it kind of fits into the “editorial-ish” theme as well.  In fact, the newspaper is opened to the editorial section!  Here I was painting hearts to add to a still life you will be seeing tomorrow!20150210-DSC_2380_melinda_anderson

  2. I love your editorial image, and the fact that you took a plastic chair it looks like and made it look grand.

    I like your take on editorial-ish. I haven’t attempted yet. Brain freeze. I hope by now your daffodils are blooming beautifully.

  4. Your editorial – ish look like a magazine ad! The greens are perfect, as is the font…I do the same thing – playing with fonts. I need more choices. 🙂 Lovely image and I like the “from the garden” theme.
