Do you crop??






This is a pic of my latest mixed media piece *Keeper of the Birds*. It is mostly acrylics and pastels with some of my papers collaged into the background. It is a largish canvas so after taking my pics, I went into Photoshop to resize. I then decided to play around with cropping some areas to ATC size (2.5 X 3.5 inches) just for fun and to see how many different pieces I could get from the one finished painting. So far - SIX! The original large canvas and five ATC size works. I am planning on printing these out and using them as a basis for more works just to see how far I can take it. At my age, I need to work smarter and not harder! LOL Digg It! Stumble Tweet It! Facebook
