Painterly Lo-Fi

I snapped the above with my phone, using One Man With A Camera, and it kind of reminds me of this:

Is this the height of arrogance? I hope not! I'm not trying to say my deliberately faked snapshot can hold a candle to this truly great painting. This is just my tip of the day... with camera apps and computer software, it's so easy to make a photo assume a "painterly" quality, even by accident so it turns out. But it's just as important to realize that a photo does not have to look like something else. What I imagine doing with this is to project my "Dog Named Lomo" onto a canvass, and actually painting it. Someday.
