Patty Larson's wonderfully whimsical self-portraits are a cheerful addition to the Painterly Mobile Art Flickr Group. As part of this ongoing series, I asked Patty to select one of her favorite images and tell us a little more about it. Please visit the group to see more of her work along with that of all of the artists. If you are a mobile photographer, we'd love to have you join.

My name is Patricia Larson. I am Mexican and live in Monterrey and have two children. Photography has marked a big change in my life and I discovered that I can create fantastic things, telling a little of my daily life and also showing a little of what is in all of us - our feelings.Patty's Commentary
Elasticam was used to transform the neck and hair of the photograph. Superimpose allowed me to join two or images. In this particular case I added the dragonflies in the lake, the body, the boat and the rope. With Sketch Club I added a little more color to the lake and painted the face of the self-portrait. I used iColorama to adjust the body tones and add the text. With Mextures and Pic Grunger, I gave the final touches to make it look more retro and lighten it up a bit.
