An Act of Gratitude

-
-
Thankful to see Melanie has returned to Inspire Me Thursday after a brief hiatus, I aim to demonstrate my gratitude with this post. The graphic was taken from the design of a glass bowl I created last fall. I altered photographs I had taken, with the macro setting of my camera, in Adobe Photoshop. I have such a good time with the Creative Prompts at Inspire Me Thursday. They encourage me to try different things and enable me to share work with other creative souls. Although still fairly new to this forum I have already seen the beauty of this community. Thank you Melanie, I am truly grateful.

Nice image! I like how you returned to a previous photo and reworked it. You're right, these prompts do encourage creative exploration.

Nicole, I thought the altered photo piece was beautiful and then I clicked thru to see the original bowl -- WOW WOW WOW! Thank you so much for sharing both with us.

Hope you are taking good care this holiday weekend and able to find peaceful moments right along side any sadness that might slip by, too. It's so human to have layered experiences. Gratitude, sadness, celebration, memorial. All at the same time.

Anyway, many miracles to you, and see you more probably as InspireMeThursday has just recently captured me, too :)
