A Moment of Rest

The theme for Texture Tuesday this week is Gratitude
Sometimes I get so caught up in what is happening that I need to catch my breath.
This image gives me a feeling of peace and is symbolic to me of a moment of rest.
I've used Kim's Autumn Burst, which has become one of my favorites, and Cream in My Coffee textures here.

Have a delightful week!

Very nice work, Marilyn! I love your gratitude for rest and I love the dynamic texturing of this beautiful image! I love this fern...and the statue!

My favourite too. Can't get enough of using it.
I like the way you used the arch in this edit. And the soft green leaves seem to come out of the frame.

Hi Marilyn.
I thought I had posted a comment on your photo but there isn't one so guess I didn't. I really like the scene, it gives you the feel of the quiet you speak of and a moment of rest. The lacy fern adds such a nice touch. Thanks for stopping by my blog and your nice comment too.

I think your choice for texture with this is perfect!

A very interesting photo! The colors are nice and soothing and I like how I am drawn to what is behind the bushes. It almost feels like I am there.

that autumn burst texture fits this photo so well!

The warm tones of the texture add to the feeling of repose and contemplation, as well as lending a lovely contrast to the bright green of the leaves. I like how the statue is a little hidden, as if hiding away from the world for a few moments of personal reflection. The curving lines of the texture you chose also create an illusion of the setting being in a grotto. At least that's how I see it, and I like what I see.

Autumn Burst works well there -- seeming to highlight the cherubs head. I love the bright green of the flowers too!
