The Great Spirit - For Cindy (AKA Cynlee) by diomedes66 ()

This is for Cindy; for this is the Great Spirit who watches over us all. He touches the hearts of those who are kind. And Cindy is one of the kindest of all. And one of the most creative. In addition, Cindy knows my love of the 'sharpening tool' and I freely admit it - old 4 x 5 training I guess :-) - however - although many and great forces compelled me to sharpen this image; with enormous effort I did not; and I have her to thank for that :-)
Thank you all so very much for all your wonderful comments and I wish to thank you for taking your time to view my artistic scribblings. Your comments and suggestions are not only deeply appreciated but valued highly.

I think black and white images need the sharpen tool in a lot of cases.Sometimes fantastic effects get created using it.Good postwork.

what I really appreciate is every new idea I see in everyone of you around here; you may find a lot of artists around you anytime, but you cannot find so many humans! you may ask how can you find artists if they don't have the soul of an artist?! well, this is some kind of paradox, but is not for here to be discuss. what I'm trying to say is that indeed cyn has that soul, that kindness that you cannot by_pass - so, this is a great dedi for a lovely Lady. as for the image itself...what I like is that I cannot see anything else but a single eye that leaves room for mystery; I would've liked to see more of his face - but the final choice is just yours, otherwise the image would not have your signature! The Great Spirit is somewhere over the rainbow and watches our ups and downs, our smiles, our tears and waits for us to be with him in the next eternity! adios, amigo! [sorry for too many "bla-bla"s]

Oh, I love the way you have blended these two images! The cloud almost looks like a bird! A very poetic piece of art, Paul! :)

Warm and wonderful dedication....and I agree, some images are much more powerful and mystical in a muted form. This image took me far away to a place of dream-walking and wisdom. Amazingly spiritual, and once again you have captured a magesty that is a thing to behold. Spectacular, Paul...I simply love it. VOTE
