Door Knocker

My good friend, Susan, has been remodeling her guest bathroom and wanted a long vertical picture to hang over the commode.  She brought me a picture of a door knocker that she had taken in Italy.  It was roughly a 12 x 18 picture and she wanted it to be 8 x 23.  We ended up with 10 x 23 but had to grow the wood area of the picture to do it.

View above the Commode

This was done by adding copy paste layers of the wood work at the top and bottom of the door knocker and then merging the layers. The smug tool was used to try to blend in the area where the layers were added, burn tool was used on the knocker itself to enhance it and the colors were enriched.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

    I swear I just saw this same door knocker on a wall display on the ship Allure of the Seas – Royal Caribbean.

      Thanks. It was a bit of a challenge to make it tall. I was having a time of it until I remembered to merge the layers. Then it went smoothly.
