Artist's Description

The long crossing through adolescence and into adulthood is not always an easy one. For many young people, it often seems like a neverending path, flooded with tears, a river of dark and murky waters

The model in this shot is Abi, my RB friend Shelly’s beautiful daughter who is 15. She was photographed by her very talented mom

Work uploaded for a challenge in the Collaborations group.

           The challenge consisted in using one or both of the two images on the left as a starting point to create something new.
monocotylidono Shelly Hiebert  

I chose to use both images, but also to add a 3rd collaborator.
|;| Vikram Franklin has kindly accepted to let me use this photo of a boat, and I used a bit of sky to improve on the new version as well.|

I also added some textures of my own, as described below:
| bit of agitated water was used mostly over the path. I simply copied part of the water from the image below into a new document and distorted the perspective a bit.|
| of my bad shots of a river. Nice to recycle into a texture!|

Here is another photo of mine used as a texture:
| use this photo of the St-Lawrence river in the fog very often in my composites. This time, it was used in at least 7 layers with various blending modes and opacities.|
| thought that the sky needed something and a crying moon was ideal. I used a photo of Jade, my 14-year old niece, added tears of blood and spherized it to create a moon. Played with the sky and shifted the thinning clouds to place the moon in a better position. Finally, I added a sheer layer of moon glow.|
