I began to play around with the photo to get the effect I wanted. I don't have many photo manipulators on my computer, so I had to settle for the photo program that came with my MacBook. It happened to be enough. I played with several different settings and had finally came up with something I liked, But, then I thought, what would this look like if I mirrored it? So I did. And the seed was planted. The original painting that was in my head was changed...and for the better, in my opinion. It said so much more.
