Your Paradise

Well how ironic that this weeks Illustration Friday theme is "Your Paradise"! I just closed on my chunk of Paradise yesterday. The last several weeks have been rather insane, hectic, dramatic, and emotionally exhausting. Which I imagine is pretty much par for the coarse when your closing on a house deal. I had no idea until the very last minute, that the deal would go through. Geeze what a grueling process! Now that the dust is beginning to settle and I finally had a day to relax, I indulged, and dabbled all day in the digital arts. Man that felt good! Kinda like paradise in the middle of paradise. I've always loved the desert, and all of the wild things that inhabit it. I've been taking pictures of all of the critters in and around my backyard. I created this Mandala from a handful of shots I've taken in the last few months. I also recycled a Rattler from a previous Illo Friday post. I used all kinds of filters, smudging, and a bazillion other adjustments while putting it together. I hope you like it. The larger version has a bit more detail, and you can view that by clicking right on the image.
