An Imperfect Photo Makes Great Art

Would you believe me if I said–just about anything?

These white tulips were so beautiful, and I didn’t want to ditch the photo, but there was this spot, this discoloration… and nothing I tried was going to blend it in! What an imperfect photo!

The one saving grace: the damaged area was perfectly round.

I became inspired! I thought that this spot might look great as a bubble. Soap bubbles, champagne bubbles… bubbles are so fun and…well… bubbly! The tulips reminded me a little of goblets…

Turning the damaged spot into a soap bubble highlighted something I hadn’t seen before: a single pink tulip petal. How sweet!

Making the bubbles wasn’t all that difficult. Neither was cropping this image or blacking out the background. But that’s okay: great art doesn’t have to be complicated. Sometimes it just leaps right out of our imaginations and onto the canvas.

I decided to experiment with the canvas medium while I was at it, too: I’ve set this design up as a metal print. Metal has great qualities for prints. The purity of the colors, the added sheen and durability. I think it’s going to be awesome. This design measures twenty-four inches by thirty-six, but Zazzle also offers it in smaller sizes.
