I Love A Place When It Becomes A Part Of Me

The memories of a place in time brings the heart such joy….

Table Rock State Park in South Carolina

waking up this morning, I could not free my self from the thoughts that surround me

like the stream that flows so fluidly

my mind embraces and caresses the rock of my salvation…

nurturing the journey within….

  2. Thanks Marion, I am glad you liked the piece. Sometimes when hiking it feels like fire just trying to reach the summit. Table Rock starts around 1,200 feet and ascends to just over 3000 feet and is rated difficult. Very rocky.

  3. This is so beautiful Walter..looks straight out of some book of magical places….
    and cross the bridge and follow the path
    where you will meet all the ones
    who go beyond Z and play around šŸ™‚

    The image process has a wonderful quality. It looks as if it should be on a print on a translucent cloth that ripple and flows. Well done !

  9. Thanks elmediat. I have been experimenting with an underlying layer that uses the colored pencil effect to give it the line texture.
