Since June 2014, I've been spending several hours each day (sometimes 10-12 hours) enhancing and posting my images on Flickr. Since I am spending so much time doing that, I may be posting here sporadically. I do have several posts set up to post automatically in future weeks, but going forward, it may be hit or miss from week to week.
If you need some ideas for your digital art, I highly recommend browsing Flickr images. I've found some interesting ideas there. I "steal" many a concept, but I'm always sure to make it my own.

I used several photos of the former Penn Station rotunda to create this.
And I created several abstracts from my photos of this location.
Rotunda of the former Penn Station
in Pittsburgh, PA.
The former Penn Station in Pittsburgh is now a privately owned apartment building.
It is considered to be one of the the great Beaux-Arts symbols of the nation.
Originally called Union Station, it was renamed in 1912. Architect: Daniel Burnham (Chicago) ---built between 1898 and 1903 from terra cotta.
A renovation and expansion of the train station occurred in 1954.
This rotunda sheltered passengers as they entered or departed carriages. It was later closed to vehicular traffic as the floor of this area is the roof of a parking garage and is not strong enough to support modern vehicles.
Inside was a 'spectacular' waiting room. I was denied entry to take photos, but I remember being there as a child seeing my grandmother off on a train trip. At the time, it seemed enormous. It is now leased to businesses.
A small portion of the building still serves as the terminus of Amtrak's Pennsylvanian route.
The office tower was converted to apartments, renamed The Pennsylvanian and opened in 1988.
