For me there is only the travelling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length – and there I travel looking, looking breathlessly.

    You are looking pretty and pensive here, Cherie

  2. What a beautiful quote, I really like it. It makes me want to travel but reminds me that some journeys can be done in your backyard.

    Lovely graphics! Was it originally a self-portrait?

      It is from a self-portrait I took in 2008. I played with the image (just after I took it) to get several different paint effect versions.

    Interesting and very nice images – is that a digital filter effect of a photo?

    • CherryPie says:

      I changed the original image using software that has now been updated. I am unable to get the same type of effects on the new software.

      • Andrew says:

        I especially like the top image. It is like an Old Master (eh… I mean an old master painting, a painting by one of the “old masters”, heck,…not a reference to you… I mean.. oh Andrew Stop Digging! :) )

        • CherryPie says:

          HaHa :-)

          Yes the image was intended to be in the ‘Old Master’ style.

          At the same time I convertated another self portrait of me into the pointillism style. That style really doesn’t work as a digital image displayed on the internet LOL
