Photography often inspires art, such as paintings, drawings, sculpture and even crafts. Photography itself is viewed as an art. Creativity is inspired using any type of media. This week’s weekly photo challenge is Life Imitates Art , asking photographers to find artwork to imitate through a photo.
Years ago, I used to dabble in painting and drawing. Fast forward to 2009, I mentioned to my windsurfing husband that I used to paint, after we discovered a flat piece of plywood worn down by the river. I thought it would make a fabulous canvas for a windsurfing painting. I found something online and kind of copied it.
As years went by, I have taken scads of windsurf photos. One late summer day, as the sun was setting low in the sky, I took some shots of my hubby sailing. Upon looking back on the photos, I realized that the above photo looks very much like my painting.
Here is my painting:
Here is the photo I found that helped inspire it.
