Here are two pieces of "abstract" art that I did using Gimp and G'mic. I am new to all this, and am just playing around with various settings, etc. being applied to several photographs I've recently taken.
Hope you like them.

They are both nice. I love to play as well, but I usually forget what I did when I get interesting results. :)

Thanks for looking at my "art". I've never done anything artistic before, other than taking photographs. Basically, what I did to create them was take a photo I had (one was my house, the other was a macro shot of flowers) and run the G'mic cubism filter on it. I would then do FX-Foundry's Color: Lasm's LAB Wow, sometimes inverting the colors afterwards. Then I'd apply various curves, adjust contrast. And in the one picture I created a new layer on top, ran the G'mic Black&White: Hough Sketch, reduced opacity to @80% with a Mode: of either Value or Hard Light. Anyway, I was just playing around, and the preview helped guide things.

Thanks for the positive feedback Molly. Here's one I just did of a flowering bush in the front of our property.

Love your Avatar Tux. :lol
Nice Charlie! ... It looks like Origami folded up and dipped in ti-dye.
Then unfolded and dried.

Very cool!
