Pic of the Day-Altered Engine

Just so you don't think that all I take pictures of is flowers, I thought I'd throw in this altered photo of an old tractor engine. (I upped the color and spiced it up a bit). Who knew old engines could be beautiful? I saw an Artist's work in Asheville once at a gallery and was so impressed and surprised. She had water colored old engines in the most vibrant colors and pigments you've ever seen. They seriously were beautiful and looked like oil or acrylics with their vibrancy. I'll see if I can find her name and add it to the comments. It's good when other people's work causes us to question how we usually look at things and makes us look at the details more closely. Beauty is everywhere, even in an old dirty tractor engine!
A picture a day helps keep the blues away...M. :)
