About Bob Galka

Retired hippie enjoying travel and photography and making art from my photos.
I have always been interested in art. Took several art classes in my teens but could never get beyond just amateur. Then in a Photoshop class that I took the teacher showed us his 'photoart' that he did in Photoshop. Well that that set me off on a path and the result is what you can see in my posted images. They have all started out as photographs. Most have been manipulated in some way... objects removed, objects added, backgrounds eliminated or replaced, colors 'messed' with. Most images are created with Photoshop's AHB (art history brush).. This is not a push button filter. The image is gone over literally by hand, using various brushes, on various layers along the way.

For me a photo has become just a starting point, a suggestion of the final art work. It has become hard for me to look at a photo now and not start thinking how I would like to transform it into a 'painting'. BTW my avatar is me as 'Don Diego' Zorro's alter ego, taken by my father in 1958.
