Day 13

“@coeiphoneart Day 13. I am now coming to the end of my 14 days of choosing images so tonight I am adding two instead of one. I am not going to say anything about the images except that they both attract me as striking examples of how to use the apps available to us on our phones or pads. Images by @npatienza_art and @elizabadoiu Love them both”.

Day 14

“@coeiphoneart Day14, this is my last day of choosing images, it has been wonderful to go through so many fabulous works of art. I have only scratched the surface with my choices and there are plenty left for the next person who takes over. I hope Joanne does not mind but I have a few pictures to put up today so I will be posting more than once on my Day 14. First up is another wonderful image by @gricoveri. Every image by Gianluca is just fabulous at showing the amazing countryside in Italy and around the Tuscany area, and he captures it so well. Brilliant.”

Day 14

“@coeiphoneart Day14 part 2, this image by @john_nieto intrigued me and it took a while to work it out. The reflections and the interior blend beautifully. A fab image”.

Day 14

“@coeiphoneart Day 14 part 3, loved this image by @lorenka It looks like a simple flipped and mirrored image but it’s not, there are many differences on each side, quite subtle. Been a big admirer of @lorenka for quite sometime”.

Day 14

“@coeiphoneart Day14 part 4. The abstract images created by @axelbergk are always fascinating and hard to believe these are done on an iPad with double exposures and layers. It was very difficult just to pick one as they are all fantastic”.

Day 14

“@coeiphoneart Day 14 my last post. I have loaded up 3 images that caught my eye @elzingamieke @tankaqueen and @tricia.dewey Sorry I can’t comment on each as I have probably overstayed my welcome, but all three are superb images. Many thanks again to Joanne and all the artists I have had the pleasure of featuring and to everyone else whose work I had the pleasure of viewing. You are all ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
