I can use some “inner flow” internally at the moment. I have been pushing very hard to get this blog and Susan Elkin’s Blog up and running and to establish the habit of posting every day. It is cold and rainy and I miss the warmer weather we had a week or two ago. I am in a maintenance mode rather than an inspiration mode. But I do feel inspired when I look at this digital painting. That feeling of being uplifted by my images is one of the highlights of my work!

One of the ways that I decide if an image is finished, is by how it makes me feel. If the results of my creative process make me feel more connected to my soul, then it is a painting that works for me. I want to be creating more beauty and bring more light into the world.
This is a painting I created in Photoshop with KPT filters with many transluscent layers. This layering gives this image the depth of field that it has. My posts of Creativity – Balance of Play and Persistence and The Light Within give more details of using these tools to create layers and light.
Thank you for being with me as I have been enjoying “Inner Flow III” and, in the process, strengthening my own inner flow.
