I'm so lucky to be one of the hosts of Scrapbookgraphics' weekly Frameworthy challenge. I love sharing some of my favorite artists with the challenge participants. This week, I selected the oh-so-talented Maggie Taylor as our inspiration. Taylor produces prints by scanning objects into a computer using a flatbed scanner, then layering and manipulating these images using Photoshop to create a surrealistic montage. The resulting work is full of vivid colors and magical images.
I found my inspiration in her work Crazy Faith. The photo she used in this delightful piece reminded me of a similar photo of my great grandfather. Living in rural Kentucky, and trying to make a living during the Depression must have been incredibly difficult. I've entitled my piece, A Hard Day's Night.
