I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Holiday. I've been busy and preoccupied lately, but I'll be back. Thanks for looking and for any comments.

I used Daz, Filter Forge, Painter, the Gimp, and Artmatic Voyager.

Cathy I can't think of a better way to close out my night than with a visit to your gallery to see your latest work of art. This one is exciting, beautiful and gave me inspiration I needed. Great work as always and hope you are back soon.

An excellent piece of work. Very well done indeed. I love the glow effect, the radiating lines and the frosty looking border.

When I lived in Canada, I would spend hours looking at the ice on the windows and the letting my imagination wander. This does the same for me... Superb artwork, my friend. Thank you, and happy holidays for you too.

I know I should concentrate on the work first, but how did you get that "happy holidays" to bounce back & forth, lol? I know, you're a whiz at code, and I know there's a code for that; but still. I don't think I've seen that in your gallery before...Ok, onto more important things. I decided to do one image per gallery this week, for time; and since I've been leaving long comments everywhere--to wish everyone a fine new year--it's taken more time than I thought. And then I come here: Coming here is like going back to an old friend's home, where I can stop, sit and share warm feelings & have a cup of cocoa and feel at home. Wonderful feeling. The goddess: You've given her a metallic sheen in spots, like overexposed film or electrically burnt copper plate; it makes her not only alit, but electric & powerful--powerful enough to pierce the shield of winter. And she does just that! Very nice shaping on the wings & arms, they reach out like jagged thought. But your background: If ever there's an example of your design sense & patterns, this is it. A lot's going on in that ice, lots of different patterns overlapping; and the lines reach into the center almost like the abstract expressionists would, with a boldness that doesn't care if it over-spills, it just "is". And you have a 'halo' of lines around the goddess, the way the renaissance masters did with gold in their paintings & sculpture. And you've "crowned" her with orbs and star-dust. It's a bluish image--winter, after all--but very powerful, esp with her breaking through the ice. And your cloud background creates a landscape. Some of your recent images have mysterious receding landscapes, where you're reaching straight through to the limits. I love this piece: And it isn't that I don't love the others as well, it's just that in only doing one, I'm totally taken by this. It's the perfect choice for New Years Eve. This guardian makes me feel safe & protected--though I don't think I'd like to piss her off, lol: She's truly a guardian, not an old pal, and don't know if she'd warm up to "how's it hangin', babe..." A terrific New Year to you friend, and may it be filled with lushness & light! Always a pleasure to come here, and I'll be back for more after the holidays...
