I've so enjoyed all the EditThis contests,but,am stumped here at #18 'cause I don't know how yet, am young,I'll find out
eventually,lolllll, to isolate c/p just your figure,from the bkgrd.........dont tell anybody what a dummy I am,ok? ok!
Good luck everyone.....terrific interpretations. Thanks anyway, Abbie.

P.S......What I wanted to do was........turn you, sort of, and put you into a 'Wyeth' scenario/back to the viewer,you know
that one. sigh. All welcome to enjoy my idea, if it interests you.

Another take on Abbie Shores' Edit This challenge. This is Abbie at the sea shore, she was looking at her phone but now she turned her head a bit to see if that seagull is going to come closer. A nice day at the beach for her!

My first entry to FAA administrator Abbie Shore's "Edit This 18" challenge. She's allowing two entries so I'll name this one Abbie's Edit Challenge 18a. Abbie's original image was a painting of a female (Abbie?), apparently texting on a cell phone. I changed out the background with a digital painting of her isolating herself physically by trying to communicate digitally. This is a conundrum today in the real world presenting a challenge of digital addiction resulting in less physical presence in reality.

My second entry to FAA administrator Abbie Shore's "Edit This 18" challenge. She's allowing two entries so I'll name this one Abbie's Edit Challenge 18b. Abbie's original image was a painting of a female (Abbie?), apparently texting on a cell phone. I wanted to depict how addictive texting is in today's world so I added a transparent chain in the form of an "X" to symbolize how an individual becomes enslaved to this digital world as well as how the symbol "X" denotes the warning sign "Not Allowed". I digitally manipulated the painting image so the chain "X" didn't cover the cell phone, allowing the viewer to more easily decipher the important detail of the composition.

I have twin brothers and I imagine this as twin sisters. One is reaching for the phone to plead with her sister to talk to her instead. I copied and flipped the image, layering it several times to match the lighting and rotated the angle of the head slightly on the sister reaching for the phone. There was a little fill work to make the hand more visible. Thank you Abbie. ( oh and somehow an Angel appeared on the wall behind them- symmetry is a wonderful thing)

Thank you for the reminder about entering the contest Abbie. i had totally forgotten about that part of it since it had been a while since i did one of these, i just enjoy the challenge. There are a lot more images entered than are shared here for those of you wanting to see what creative people we have here, including another person who thought in multiples but in a whole different way. :-)

My third version of FAA administrator Abbie Shore's "Edit This 18" challenge. I'll name this one Digital Addiction. Abbie's original image was a painting of a female (Abbie?), apparently texting on a cell phone. I wanted to depict how addictive and dependent using smartphones are in today's world. I added a hand using a smartphone to take a picture of someone using a smartphone which is Abbie's original painting of someone using a smartphone.

This is a digital composition created from an original painting on canvas by Abbie Shores for the contest Edit This 18. Abbie is calling all her friends for a sit-in. They must all wear blue jeans and have long hair. She must have a lot of friends.

Thanks, I'm aware of the process for entering, but I never enter the contest. Generally, out of principle, I do not do contests, especially art contests, at least these days. It's more of a personal challenge thing, and an opportunity to see how other people handle the assignments. There's something addictive about it, for its own sake. (^_^).

 

A bit late to the party and not very creative, but I thought I'd throw my hat into the ring - with "Whatcha Looking At" - by combining images from two different "Edit This" challenges.

In a bare room, with no furnishings, family portraits or artwork on the walls, windows for light and people with pets, sits a women lost in her texting and on social media. She is totally unaware of the gifts of life going on around her and her only friends are mostly virtual now. To your powerful painting, Abbie, I have added this phone, her phone, showing an ecard for a Mother's Day Card that this woman found online, used to text her mother and wish her a Happy Mother's Day. Because the submissions end and voting begins on Mother's Day, I thought it was a good time to remember our Mom's, here or in heaven. Thank you so much for your painting, Abbie!!

This is a digital composition created for Edit This 18 contest. The original is a painting by Abbie Shores and is an image of a girl texting on her cell phone while on the floor. My rendition shows the girl breaking away from herself and starting to leave the room perhaps indicating she is undecided and doesn't want to give a final commitment. My inspiration for this piece is from Paul Gaugin's Nafea Faaipoipo meaning 'when will you marry?'

This Edit Challenge is the best one yet. I think it's because Abbie's painting is so relatable :) Abbie, in this painting, could be your sister, your daughter, your wife, your friend. Great entries!
