Garden For A Rainy Day (Version #1)

It's not really rainy here yet, but it feels like it is because I'm a little bit sick today. Hope this cheers you up as it did me! View On Black


I made this from an old photo of a Chihuly display inside the conservatory at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. I made a mirror image of it and blended the two. Somehow I think symmetry is a soothing art component. It's not always my choice, but today i like it. The carousel horse is from a lovely one in St. Augustine. One of my very favourite things. Plus a few "amazing circles" to add a bit more whimsy. Used a filter called "crystallize" on parts.


Thanks again for all your feedback on my work. Sharing here on Flickr has made me improve my artwork so much faster than if I hadn't been here.


Have a creative day!


"Bless the LORD, O my soul,

And forget not all His benefits:

Who forgives all your iniquities,

Who heals all your diseases,

Who redeems your life from destruction,

Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

Who satisfies your mouth with good things,

So that your youth is renewed like the eagle's."

Psalm 103:2-5
