A Week of Thanksgiving

This week we will be celebrating the American Thanksgiving holiday. It is a time to reflect upon the things we are thankful for and a time to enjoy the company of family. My youngest son will sadly not be spending Thanksgiving with us this year as he is studying abroad on a youth exchange program. I am, however, looking forward to having my 2 oldest sons home for the holiday as well as my in-laws. I am looking forward to the hustle and bustle in the kitchen, lingering over delicious meals while listening to stories of their adventures, as well as our lively Scrabble tournaments. I am thankful for my amazing family!

This image started off little under-exposed, but I loved the leaves and potential it had. I tweaked it using some RadLab filters, and then played around with a couple of new textures I have been working on (and continue to work on), "Sienna Grain" and "Sienna Magic". I liked the bold, almost abstract result the textures added.

I will share these textures with you soon :-)

Happy Sunday!
