Collaboration with Steve (And Steve's Wife): A Swelling of Sound

This is not a splotch monster, but it is a collaboration with Steve. When I looked at the string splotch as shown by Steve in the post below, all I could see was a naked woman or two people embracing, but when I turned it on its side, I saw a conductor.

All the lines in this piece are directly from the original shown below (Or you can see it on Steve's post, a little further below). I used the clone tool to clone lines in the original into new positions.

I will print this and place it in Willie's pocket when Willie's pocket arrives.

1)My collaboration with Steve and his wife

2)a crop of the original area

3)The original string print turned to show the conductor. I could have used the whole area, showing the sound washing over him, which I considered doing, but decided on the crop. Partly because I just returned from a trip and have much to do to get caught up! We were camping in the Pinery in Ontario Canada. Lovely spot.

For some reason, this looks much less saturated on here than it does on PS.

Love Ontario, as well as Toronto! I actually camped in Ontario about 14 years ago - sounds familiar!

The angle you have this is the original Mary. I really like your interpretation of it too! Thanks for trying one out!

I'd still like to do a monster, but a monster isn't what I saw here. Thanks, Steve--it was glorious there.

This is incredibly interesting. You adapted the work so mildly, and yet gave it much more imagery & movement & feeling. Very cool!
