The image is from a trail in Fountain Hills, Arizona with vistas so wide they dwarf you. I used an app called Prisma to add a filter to the original photo, which created this painterly effect. Finally, I added a favorite quote from Edward Abbey, a novelist, naturalist, and activist that reflected the attitude of the image and the experience. By using the Paint program, I was able to resize, color, and play with font styles to get the result I wanted.
Using images you create yourself is satisfying and offers the opportunity to choose something meaningful to you, while inviting others to enjoy the slice of life you share. Your images can be drawings, collages, or from sites like Pixaby. Be daring! Craft something to send into the world!
