There’s a filter to make a photo look like my art—sort of.

Il existe maintenant un filtre pour transformer une photo en image qui ressemble à mon art—un peu.

Shannon Kringen used the Dreamscope app to transform her photo. I first talked about it in this post.

If you think you’d hate to have your style turned into a filter, I encourage you to really examine what you’re afraid of in that scenario.

Si vous êtes convaincu que vous ne serez pas content de trouver que votre style a été transformé en filtre, je vous encourage à examiner ce qui vous fait peur vraiment dans cette situation.

I think it would be lots of fun to have my art turned into a filter. It means someone really liked it and think others would too smile I don’t see it as a threat.

Gwenn,

You have officially arrived! Your own filter:)

No mistake though, it can’t replace the essence of what your artwork is about.

Love that you have an actual dictionary on your bookshelf. We have the same one:)

@Linda: It is a lovely feeling!

@Libby: I’m a dictionary nerd. I have one from 1923 that never ceases to surprise me with its priorities as well as its definitions… smile

There are thousands of filters for picture malipulation but I have to say yours is one of the very best I have seen.  You can instantly see which artist is behind the style and full credit to the filter designer.  The finish on the filtered image looks like original Gwen Seemel artwork rather than a filtered image - simply stunning!

@Rob: I wonder if the filter designer really was looking at my work. My take on it is more that they named the filters after what if made them think of. Either way, it’s a compliment!
