Don't weep for me (for tinypaws) by 

Sony Cyber Shot 100V
July 2012
Photoshop 6.0 with various layers of my own photos and textures by Shadowhouse.
I began with a picture of this dog being petted by a girl and as I began working with it, I added the ducks and some landscape and some textures and as I faded all but the dog, it reminded me of a dog who enters heaven and what it would encounter. This dog loved his farm life and his owner and when he arrived, he was surrounded by everything he loved. I believe we have a God who loves every creature that much to welcome them to their new home as well. I believe animals go to heaven.
Dedicated to all our beloved pets who have gone on to their heavenly home and crossed that rainbow bridge.
I was inspired to do this work from my RB friend tinypaws whose works are so beautiful as she layers her own photos to create some of the most endearing images I have ever seen.

It is my hope to always bring out something good and positive in all that I do! Despite our outward differences of faith, religion, culture, or even global location, one thing we all as humans embrace is a sense of acceptance, and belonging. Our art is an expression of who we are and a language that needs no words. It is my hope that my work depicts all that is loving and positive in which to edify others. I give all my thanks to my God who has uniquely and wonderfully created us in His image.
