Do they look intricate to you?DSCF0494

I still haven’t had the chance to visit the caves at DunHuang, so these are replicas.DSCF0495

It is on my bucket list to visit the caves in China and appreciate how much artistic works had been created so many years ago!

From Photos to Oil Paintings

I have been experimenting the conversion of some of my photos into oil paintings using a free download software from the internet.

In my travels, there are many places where I would have liked to stop by, take a seat, take my brushes out  and paint. Unfortunately, I am no painter.

The process of converting the photos is fun. I am happy that, without being a painter, I can create some  impressionist “oil paintings” of the sceneries I like.

Here are some of the examples. Please enjoy.

I can’t help amazed at what computer technology can do for us and am thankful for that!
