This surrealistic fantasy is created from dozens of bits of photos I took in Italy and in my garden. Each tiny element is from a different photo, and each has been carefully isolated and digitally manipulated. Every little group of flowers, and many individual ones, are treated in this manner and then carefully layered among the rest to form a realistic-looking mass of flowers. An extremely time-consuming process! Even the sea and sky are created from multiple photos that have been altered and blended. The image as a whole is evocative, but the story is in the eyes of the beholder. Each viewer’s interpretation will be unique.
