Artist's Description

For years I knew of it’s existance, a book called the "The Prophet " by Kahlil Gibran but for one reason or another I had never read it. When this artist portrait Contest came up I learned that Kahilil was also a visual artist. I picked up a copy of his word and was just in awe of his talent as a writer. His ability to take the written word and give it real and tangible substance. I realize what we try to do as visual artists to communicate,convey and share, Kahlil does with his prose. His writings are rich,elegant and painfully simple. I am a knew fan and wonder what took me so long!

This was an original illustration of watercolor on cardboard, and then digitally altered in CS6 utilizing blending modes, custom brushes, onOne picture perfect and Flexify II software!
