Sunflower Quartet

It is crunch time on the farm with harvest season set to begin next Saturday. We've all been working day and night to get ready for the show to begin. So to unwind before drifting off to sleep this past week, I have been exploring alternative processes and looks of a favorite sunflower image from a year ago. This is what I ended up with.

I find the creative process an interesting adventure. Some times I can visualize the desired result and work to attain that vision. Other times, as in this instance, the only goal was to explore different textures and graphic interpretations. It wasn't so much about the destination as the journey.

Every bend I went around on this journey, I found something else I liked. I lost count of the various processes and apps I used to create this. I do know that each interpretation is a result of at least two versions that were blended together to achieve the result. Most used four, five or six or more apps to create. Don't ask how many creative apps I have- I've lost count.
