Neon Hibiscus Flower
Nature is perfect. There is no improving upon Nature. Nature is what Nature is. But sometimes it’s kind of fun to mess with her a little bit (in a good way). But you have to be careful, because she always gets even (eventually). In this case I converted the original digital image of a Hibiscus flower to a dazzling Neon Borders effect. Did it improve upon perfection? Decidedly not. Did I have fun doing it? Yes I did. But like a Japanese Sumi-e ink painting, reducing this digital image to ‘Neon Borders’ simplified the image, which is a very Zen thing to do. I like the colors, the vibrancy and how Nature’s underlying architectural structure is highlighted and stands out in bold relief.
