2015-05-22 Abstract: It ain't art but fun to do

Every year in December i choose some images as donations for the Christmas charity event of my friends Jörn and Marion Tiggemann from SD-E. This is not an easy task because very few of my images and artwork are suited to decorate the walls in a living room.
Well, this year i'll try my luck with two series of wipes with altered colours using Photoshop and RadLab. I am actually quite happy to have completed this task in May, leaves more time for Christmas shopping and gift wrapping in December.

Here are the images, what do you think?
