Though I did not post on this site during Covid, I was active with my art. There is a group of highly accomplished fine art photographers I belong to, Lightworks. One member, Dany Suk, was a major influence and gave me valuable guidance in "painting" my photos. Dany's work is sublime, with years of experience and natural talent. The process relies on Painter, a digital painting program. It allows photographers to go beyond the typical photo editing tools and provides infinite tools for interpretations.
I captured this image at California's Salton Sea. The colors and brushes I chose were used to create an even more bleak and cold scene, a sense of abandonment and loneliness.
