Well, although the "embracetheface" theme has not been officially announced for January, it appears that "grow" has won the challenge, by a very slight margin.
Last month, a talented artist, S L Greek, contributed her artwork to the blog, and it brought to mind a piece I had done in the past, but never shared with anyone other than the recipient; a new mommy.
In the original painting, the background sky is a much lighter variation of blues, but I decided to change the scanned image with a "paint" program in order to create a darker, star filled night.
So it is now (slightly) redone with digital enhancement. That's my new thing!I will be using my painting of "evening moon" as my "face"contribution for the "grow" theme on Embrace the Face for January 09. I hope you stop by.
P.S. I'm dreaming of entering the 21st century by learning Photoshop. Then I'll really be over the moon ;-)
