Passing of time....

This last week has just gone by so fast, I cannot believe a week has already passed since I was away for my weekend retreat! It already feels like an eon since I had a holiday.......

The image provided by ACF this week seems appropriate then, of a sweet 'granny' figure. I created this digital piece using a sunset photograph, complete with wooden rocker I took while away, along with the horse image. I combined these with the photograph provided and used a number of layering techniques and Photoshop brushes to pull the whole look together, a respected figure remembering all those good times and younger days....

This looks great! And you've done all this with photoshopping? I'm only familiar with the old fashioned glueing and cutting. But this makes curious !

What a pensive, sad look on this woman's face. You've created a wonderful sense of story around her. I can just imagine her life and some of her memories.
