This all brings up an interest topic that right now is raging on the QuiltArt maillist ....What is original art. Now, a lot of us, work from photos. Since I publish my process, you all know that for the last 5 years, I normally use a copyright free image, manipulated it beyond recognition and use that as my base pattern. (If you didn't know that - just follow along with my new piece). Now I would say my work is original art even thought it was born in someone else's photo because even I'm hard pressed to see the original photo in my finished piece.
|Final Piece - Could you recognize it from the photo?|
There are many opinions on this one - so I'll let you decide what's right for you. Obviously Hollis has.
(I put the links to the referenced photos in the comments section)
So what have you been up to creatively?
