I started working with a black canvas on PIcMonkey yesterday, just to see what I could create with black. Had some fun fiddling with the gizmos, then added a photo I worked on in Photoshop of a firework exploding in one of the Merit Hotel’s fireworks displays last year. Today we visited the Gardens of Babel, in Bahceli, here in North Cyprus. It’s a magical place and I had the feeling I’d find a photo here to complete the digital art piece I was working on. Sure as eggs, I took a close-up of a water lily and here’s the result. I called it: Compassion of the Soul because of the gold light at the centre of the water lily for wisdom and love, and the white representing the power of divinity. The colours behind are strong because when we exercise compassion, we are truly powerful for we have broken free of the bonds of selfishness and have opened our hearts to others.
