Just wondering if any of you sent photos in for the 'Eye of the Quilter' contest that will debut at the IQA Quilt Festival in Houston in October. I was really disappointed with myself this year for not entering a quilt since I have had one in the judged show the last 2 years. Somehow I felt that this year I just didn't have anything good enough. I thought maybe if I could get photos into this exhibit I might feel a little better about not entering a quilt. You were asked to enter up to 3 photo on any subject and you could manipulate them if you wanted.
A couple of years ago I visited a lighthouse in Florida and was fascinated by the play of light on the original lamp that was on display. The glass was thick and cut to best intensify the light. As I walked around it, each angle provided a rainbow of colors and I couldn't stop taking pictures. I was a teenager in the 60's and loved the psychedelic colors. I used Coral Photo-Paint to create a different psychedelic effect on each of the images. Here is one of the original images and my psychedelic interpretation. I think this would make a great quilt.
I am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping I get selected.
