"Heading South"

Uploaded: January 30, 2010


Photographed our baby kitten, extracted background in Photoshop. Placed image on canvas after gradient was created. Then layering many times and using several tool and lots of brushes, I created this mixed media picture. Hope it makes you smile. I had fun creating it.
