Spirit Within 07_23_08.jpg

We got up before dawn and slipped up the canyon this morning to try again. I think this image works better. Mother Nature sure made the perfect pattern in the bark for this image.

Lady Wanda and Sir William,
I agree with "Bob from Down Under"
Outstanding work from the both of you. Gosh you guys are good!

That is very cool, Bill. Wanda as wood nymph. I like your expression better in this one, Wanda, and bark never looked so good. Nice job on this.

Daunting? Yes!!! Flaunting? No!!! Haunting? Yes!!! Taunting? Yes!!!
Go for it, you two. You are two outstandingly creative, yet sharing, individuals.
We are so blessed to have you on this Earth!!!
Keep up your great efforts together - and please, please, continue to share your multi-talents with your global community!!!

This is so well would be a wonderful B&W study without Wanda, with Wanda it takes on the surrealistic quality I think you were looking for. This could make a wonderful series of the Spirit Within appearing in several natual settings...grass, mountain landscapes, water, etc. Hope to see more!

Nicely done with just the right amount of blending. V

This is such a cool concept. I wonder what would happen if the upper half of Wanda's body were to curve, following the lines to her left?

A mystery - is she appearing or disappearing?!!
