Work in Progress for a Surrealism Art

I am working on my version of a surrealism like Salvador Dali. He uses stark backgounds, fluid clocks, animals with long legs, and other items that may be in a dream. I am not sure what to do next. Thanks to Leah, she gave me the idea of the lake turning into a funnel.
This assignment I received 9 out of 10. I shouldn't have used cats in the water funnel. This was too confusing and Dali probably would not have cats in his images.

Midterm - torn paper collage

For my midterm we had to tear pieces of paper and make a picture out of them. I think there are about 10 small pieces of paper total used on this project. I don't know if I am done yet or not. This was not easy!

I got 140 out of 150 points on this project. The left side of the barn should have extended into the first frame instead of cutting it off in the middle frame.

Wild Horses

We took a drive this weekend to view the fall colors. One of the things we ran into were the large numbers of wild horses. There must have been over a couple hundred in the Warm Springs area. We had to stop twice for horses in the road. Some areas look like there isn't enough food and of course with the summer fires it looks bad. We did see one dead and birds eating him. Yuk! Maybe some day there will be a solution.

Billboard for class

Here is my attempt at creating a billboard for a non-existent company. I hope he doesn't get to mad at me.

Water into Wine

For my digital design class I had to create an abstract still life and do color correction. I am not claiming to be an artist, so abstract is something out of my normal range. See the difference from the original and the new one is quite exciting!
I can turn water into wine, or Chardonnay into Pinot Noir!
And you might recognize the flowers - it is my (one) beautiful sunflower from the backyard.
