This past week I worked on patterns and textures. This image is my entry for Texture Tuesday.
This week there is no theme - just "free and easy" as Kim calls it.
I used my custom ginko brushes and a texture or two. Those of you who know
me, know I collect Buddhas. I shot this photo at my friend's home on her patio.
There's always a sense of peace and tranquility that goes with the Buddha.
I also dabbled in making my own patterns, and one of the things I'm learning in Ann Passmore's class is

I did the famous Xanthe circle here and added
some text for fun.
Then I took my original
and cropped a bit of it so the main flower would be the focal point. I selectively added pieces of pattern

Won't you stop in at Kim's linky party and enjoy some various works of art? Better yet, join in the fun.
I've learned so much from Kim and other wonderful teachers.
