Well...I want to share something with you that was retweeted by my friend, Tina Hunt...
The beautiful part of writing is that you don't have to get it right the first time unlike, say, brain surgery. Robert Cormier.

So today for now, let's make it light as I share two works from this weeks' Beyond Layers and Texture Tuesday. Texture Tuesday's theme this week was "not necessarily textured Tuesday"... Here's my submission...
This photo was taken at a bog metropark nearby on a very hot day...the recipe includes some layers using a black and white gradient map (normal, screen mode, and soft light) and then duplicating the background layer and adding a black and white gradient...toning down the yellow, selecting at about 20 px feathering, using a levels adjustment to make a highlighted frame. It gives it this kind of dreamy feel...so I called it "Field of Dreams."
This is my first attempt with Kim's recipe for Day 58, Painting with Light, with Beyond Layers. Did a selection with level adjustments and a little cross processing... A great quote by Anne Lamott~~
I do not understand the mystery of grace ~~ only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us.
Five facts will be coming later today...so stay tuned.
It's a joy to have all of you a part of my life!
