Snow Angel


My creativity and inspiration are both at ebb tide these days. As the weather grows colder and the light retreats, my energy wanes for a bit. It will equalize itself again,I'm hoping, as we move closer to the bustle of the holidays.

I've been working on ideas for three challenges this week; adding poetry to an image for a Yahoo digital group, the Angel theme for the next Take a Word challenge, and Winter for 4x4 Friday.

Today, finally it all came together into one piece.

The image is from the Graphics Fairy, with wings from Suzee Que. The background started with a texture by JoesSistah and a blue gradient overpainted with watercolor stroke brushes. The snowflakes and tree branches are brushes also.

I couldn't find a line of poetry that suited my feeling, so I wrote this haiku to finish the piece.

Wow, sometimes I even amaze myself...
