This is so beautiful Safiyyah. I bet this is one of your new Flickr pictures? Did you take it?

Irving said...

Lovely Art, Dear Sister :)

Ya Haqq!

Debora said...

Looks like you've got a great handle on the software and a great eye, masha Allah. Stunning swim!

Safiyyah said...

@ Lisa: Yes, I took it and manipulated it with the Galaxy software. Would you believe it was originally a shot of a church steeple (also at my Flickr site)?!

@Irving: As Salaamu Alaikum My Dear Brother Irving. Thanks for stopping by!

@Debora: Thanks for visiting! The software is so fun and unique. The nice part is that the result is always a surprise.

Very cute!

Lisa said...

Wow, I never would have guessed! Can't wait to see more of your work!

That could be made into a painting quite easily.

Mind if I use it?

Dubai Guy said...

I thought it was inside of a dome until I read it was an art piece. impressive stuff :-)

Safiyyah said...

Salaams Sabiwabi Dear:

You may use it my friend and sister. If it's for personal use, no problem. If you re-create it exactly - please credit the original digital art to me.

Safiyyah said...

Salaams Dubai Guy: Thanks! I was thinking of rotating it.

The English translation of the piece's Spanish name means "black and blue" - so I was going to rotate it to put the black at the upper left hand side.

Another thing -

It is digital art made with Adobe Photo Shop Elements 7 and a Galaxy plug in filter. My inspiration is the lovely work done by Sister Marahm at http://www.marahm.wordpress.com.

Go take a peek at her awesome stuff, Masha Allah!

I am currently sitting (learning) at the edge of her jilbab! She is so generous, Masha Allah, at sharing her knowledge of this wonderful art form.
