Deep Silence by Carmen Holly

Inspired by the Quote ~ Strength is Born in the Deep Silence of Long Suffering Hearts

Created the background in PaintShop Pro with my own grunge brushes etc. & adding my white rose photo with the sketch effect. Then into Photoshop to draw the face with the pen tool using different styles & effects..more grunge & textures. Then into Corel Painter 11 to give the eye reality & more brush & blending effects.
