Love the position of the birds, the color combination, swirls and texture. It is a very artistic piece. Is the background one of your paintings? Lovely. It would go well on the wall.

Irene, This is absolutely my favorite of your recent works! Everything Phyllis said is exactly what I would say. This is stunning and I truly love the style. What dd technique did you use for the raised textures? I'm guessing it was a layer of a painting of yours? Bravo!

I created this piece several years ago so I don't remember exactly what I did.
The background was a sunset. I cut and pasted some of the clouds on a new layer and applied the wave filter. Then I applied a bevel.

Irene,
This is a beautiful piece, and it conveys a wonderful sense of peace. I like the colors and textures you used as well as the abstraction of the birds.

However you did this it is really unique. You can really see the different textures in this almost like a painting.

You are hands down one of the most creative people I have ever met. Your work is always inspiring, fresh and cutting edge, Irene. It makes me want to work harder at trying out new things.

Great job in every way here. Your sense of style and balance really shows through and I enjoyed examining this work of art!!!
