Hercules and the Lion


This weeks photo assignment was Levitation. Photoshop manipulations is just not something I am good at and I’m not sure I really want to spend that much time in front of a computer screen. However, I wanted to give it a try.

An exhibit of Calder’s work in Houston with all of his wonderful mobiles suggested this possibility.

This is Hercules and the Lion. I did some photoshop work on it make it look like was floating but the other students in the group did floating slices of lemons and people and flowers and….all beyond my skill level.

a visit to see the Calder-Pciasso exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston was delightful. The mobiles of Calder and some of Picasso’s metal work were exhibited elegantly. It was one of those events difficult to descxribe in words; however, I took some photos and this was the best of the group. Calder’s Hercules and the Lion. I did some photoshop work to create the colored background to simulate the floating requirement. While not as detailed as someo f the others in the group, it was definitely outside of my skill level. My thanks to Calder and to the Museum for providing such a great exhibt.
