I took this self-portrait with my Samsung Galaxy S8. Honestly, I don’t take many selfies, but I took this picture on a whim to capture my hair in its natural state. I played around with the photo editor settings to give the image a nostalgic look because I love old photos.

Looking back at this image I wondered what it would look like if it were a painting because I also love art. Since I’m not a trained painter, I decided on a digital solution. With the Picas app, I transformed the self-portrait into digital art using the Waves filter. The authenticity of the brush strokes are amazing! I really love the way it turned out.

So the next time you take a selfie, unleash your inner artist with an app from your mobile store. There are hundreds of art filter photo apps to choose from. The technology we have today allows us to turn something ordinary into something extraordinary in just a touch of a button. So have fun!
