Digital Artist
Anesidora; ie: Pandora-"she who sends up gifts, from below within the earth" According to the myth, she opened a jar, in modern accounts mistranslated as a box. She is responsible for releasing all the evils of mankind. Originally began in 2008 and recently re-visited, this is a "mixed-media" work; airbrush, blenders, charcoal, and pastels, in Corel X, and the flooring effect in PSE. Thank you for indulging my imagination, and as always, your visit and comments are greatly welcome.

    ...appreciate saying so Wicker. The backgrounds are always the toughest to pull off for me, as I wrestle with just the right fit on each work I do. You have encouraged me to keep up the efforts as they have been and strive to get better. Thanks again.

    ...thanks soooo much Heather. I always appreciate the input, and in this case, i'm especially grateful. As the smoke was the intentional focus of the movement and flow to this piece. Glad this pleases so much.

    ...so good of you to drop in again Daruma, and with the supportive eye, as always. Thank you so much. I was hoping the subtlties, and focus of the work was obvious enough to grab the eye. You confirm it is. Thanks again bud.

    Wow, another great image! I've gotta say that smoke is really impressive. The way it is so well defined from it's source and then less so as it dissipates around the floor. Really well though out stuff! 5*
