The Road Less Traveled

Posted by
Barbara Kile (Ft. Worth, United States) on 7 December 2009 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

Another image with the Orton effect and Alien Skin Snap Art 2.

There is an emotional connection here too, thus the title. There is healing in nature, and often, we just have to leave the computers, the traffic, and the concrete behind and take a nature walk to regain our perspective, focus, peace of mind, and nurture our life-giving spirit. Restore and replenish, or we have nothing to give away. Get out today and..... take a walk!

Nicely spoken, and this is a magnificent place in which to take that walk you suggest.
Love those warm yellows (and the Orton effect.)
