Gratitude eDition - Texture Tuesday

Our challenge this week is "gratitude" and to use two of Kim Klassen's textures.  I'm grateful for so many things in my life, but one thing I've been needing is "solitude", a little alone time to center myself.  I think as mothers, wives, sisters and even friends, we lose ourselves (or I know I do).  I'm grateful for my alone time...my me time.  So this photo of a lone horse reminded me of "Solitude".


I used Kim's Portrait, blending mode Multiply 100% and Canvas Back blending mode Multiply 100%, erased some of the texture from the horse.  I really didn't have a clear idea or image in my head, but I like the way it came out.

This is just stunning. I love how you have unexpected elements of color shimmering within your landscape. I think your interpretation of the TT theme is just perfect. I would love some alone time, too!

This photo is stunning. I like the way you feature the horse in the center of the picture and also placed it in its surroundings. Well done

That is really beautiful, the old style textures and vignette finish it so well.
