Abstract for PDPA Challenge

     This week I chose to do the "abstract" portion of the challenge with Bonnie's "Chinks of Light" Texture. Had fun trying several different variations and finally decided on publishing this one. Thanks, Bonnie, for your continued efforts at helping us "grown in our art."

Wonderful. The texture looks fabulous with the scene you chose. It has a great wintery artistic feel.

Your creativity is inspiring.
I have yet to move much beyond where I am currently comfortable.
(I have just gotten comfortable with actions and texture applications.)
Your art and that of Bonnie (PDPA)
and the others posting on Photo Art Friday keep pushing me :)
Thanks, too, for the PS layer shots.
