Abstract exploration…

ab·stract art:  Art that does not attempt to represent external reality, but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, forms, colors, and textures.

Result from Photoshop manipulation using the liquify tool. As I played with the strokes, the image seemed to take on a form in tune with the Christmas season.

Image of winter sun through icy branches. Manipulated with liquify tool in Photoshop and seemed to take on the form of a mother and child with a cross.

 

Sights of Christmas reflected in the eyes of a child.

To a child, every lighted tree seems thirty feet tall, jingle bells add magic to the air and even the days leading up to this holiday seem extra-special with the aroma of freshly baked goodies, colorful blinking lights while festive music fills the air.

Christmas is that joyous time of year filled with hope as we praise and thank God for sending us our Savior from sin. How special to share this good news with children as they remind us to never lose these feelings of joy, hope and excitement.

May your Christmas season last throughout the whole year…
