The original photo of my son and granddaughter was taken along the seashore in Japan. I loved the outlines of their bodies and the forward motion of their somewhat synchronized bodies.  

How I Arrived at this Image

  • In Illustrator I converted my image into a silhouette to better show the main shapes
  • In Photoshop, I cropped the image so that it became a portrait view rather than landscape
  • I added a gradient and then used filters to add more texture.  

An artist friend of mine Sharon Cummings commented that this would make a great Father's Day gift. I know I have a great emotional attachment to it.
