Surroundings, a marvelous florist enterprise that faces Lincoln Park, has a small glass addition at the entrace. The windows of the original buiding in the lower left are reflecting trees from the park, and there are more tree reflections on the outside glass. Between the planes of reflections are orchids and plants and an arch for climbing things, providing a lovely selection of shapes and colors to work with. The original was a very small file, taken with the first version of Paper Camera, so the challenge here was to size it up considerably as I transformed it.
Kitchen Tools D Street
Racks of shiny new kitchen tools at Hill"s Kitchen provided the starting point for this artwork. The original photo was taken with the Camera360 App, so it was a very small file that needed to be sized up a great deal. I really liked the original texture I had to work with, so I took great pains to maintain it throughout all the processes.
