Hehe...I've missed seeing your liquified images for a while! This one is fun and well done. The distortions are excellent, for style and humor. I like the b&w look (although there seems to be some suggestion of colors!) for focus on the distorted forms and patterns that make this work so well. Clever and artistic, and hooray for hpp! :)))

They are smiling at me....

Like the effect Michel, it still seems like a group of people having fun, but they are no longer recognisable, another idea to have some fun with pictures - still smiling back at this group. An inspiration again. Thanks,



Beautiful colours and experimental picture, nice work and details. Fantastic shot. Well done.
Best wishes,

Active again?
This is just funny art
must be a joy to do this

Salut Michel! Héhéhé, j'adore. C'est très bien fait bravo!


Ciao Michel

Irreverent and funny family you have here.
I like when you play with the colors and the pictures,
you show your creativity and the form of as
you would like that it went,
Beautiful effect and a good mood!
Good Sunday!


This is distinctive for sure, Michel. Wacky, perhaps, but warm as well. Nice composition in terms of both the POV and the family feel apparent in their attitudes. I'm sure this image will be memorable for them as well as for us.


A real Nova trademark!
