A bit of fun – I wanted to create a ‘personal heaven’. Lying on the grass in the sun reading a book seemed just perfect. :-)

Part of my new series of images for licensing on Arcangel-Images – use this code: SYST-0194

Created with my own photographs in Photoshop, no stock used.


heaven, peace, peaceful, bucolic, soldier, lake, hand, car, tree, morris minor, swan, sheep, books, bench, photo manipulation, altered art, sybille sterk, magpiemagic, textures, grunge

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    Beautifully constructed. Sounds kinda idyllic to me. ;o) A longed for wish in today’s busy world.

  • Thank you Lindsay. :-) I’d love to find a place like that with forever sunshine and an endless supply of books… xo

  • Thanks so much Robin. There’s an even larger version here On that one you can (just) see that the person lying down is a soldier. :-)
