Altered Vintage Images

Wednesday, March 18, 2020 6:00 PM

We had this painting in my house growing up. It turns out it was a popular print in the UK but, I always thought it was really creepy to have a picture of a crying child in our house but I hung on to it. I found it in the attic the other day and decided to give it new life. It was a print but just in case it was some master piece or something I thought I’d check it out online. Turns out there is a story behind the image

So, I decided not to paint right on top, who needs to mess with a curse … Instead I decided to give it new life so I took away the tears and turned her into a Superhero. I took a picture and worked digitally, here's the before and after images.


Here is your challenge if you choose to accept it. Find your own vintage image and transform it into a artwork of your own, and if it has an interesting story behind it even better. Then share it on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #CreateArtFeelBetter so we can all take a look.
