Keep Your Face To The Sunshine by 

Inspired by this quote from Helen Keller, “Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It’s what sunflowers do.” – Helen Keller

Manipulated sunflower image, created digital background, textures and the portrait all layered and merged with color and lighting adjustments. All my own works. Used PSE and Topaz.

I am happy to share my vision with you and I hope that it touches you in some small way.
