Collaging with Special Effects

This week we will be doing a series on Special Effects. These images were all created by my students at the community college where I teach. I continue to be charmed and inspired by the creativity of the people in my Emeritus classes!


"The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work." ~Emile Zola

We all strive to find the strong suit for ourselves and our children, and then follow the path where that leads.

Betty Levy has always painted, but put her brushes aside to raise her family. When she came back to the easel it was with great strength, life experience and creativity. And guess what? Her talent was waiting for her--better than ever. And now she is using a digital brush to create along with her paint brush.

Just look at the marvelous collages she has been generous enough to share with us on the blog:

"God doesn't give people talents that he doesn't want people to use." ~Iron Eagle

Add filters and you have another delicious look for the same image.

“Beyond talent lie all the usual words: discipline, love, luck -- but, most of all, endurance.” ~James Arthur Baldwin

A special thank you to Betty Levy for sharing her delicious collages with us!
