Day 357 ~ Make something natural look pixilated.

A pixilated photo of YoYo in a dusting of snow at dawn.

I thought of working from this photo to produce a painting, and maybe I will do that in the future, but here instead, I've let the computer do in a split second what it would take me hours, days, to paint with obsessive meticulousness.

There was SOME creativity involved. I spent some time finding the right photo. I played around with the colors and the size of the grid.

I was thinking, also, what a great quilt this would be, if I could find, or perhaps dye the fabric with such subtle variations in hue and value. Wouldn't that be neat? (Maybe it will appear on my 2013 blog, which I'm considering calling 'On Creative Days'.)
