The Beheld

Ronovan Hester Quote-Beauty in the Heart of the Beheld.

“Beauty lies not in the eye of the beholder, but is instead in the heart of the beheld.”~Ronovan Hester

 

Alligator and babies with Haiku poemI hadn’t intended to combine any challenges this week, nor in fact participate. With it being a holiday week here in the US, and the boy “B” home for much of it, I didn’t think it would be possible. However, when I woke this morning a phrase came to my mind, the one I am using as my Writer’s Quote Wednesday participation, if there is one this week, what with the holiday and all. Although my first thought was not of the animal world, I eventually made my way in that direction and through my photoshop painting came up with the above from a photo I found online. To get the blended and brush stroke qualities, not so evident here, there is a blend tool to use. Lay down several colors in an area and then use the tool and slide over the area. The colors will blur and blend as though you mixed paints.

The poem and image are contributions to my Haiku Challenge this week, and in part to #BeWoW if people wish to link back to here for that purpose as my son will be home tomorrow and I’m certain I will have little time for doing things other than hopefully watching some old holiday movies and maybe eating popcorn.

  1. Beautiful! I love this and agree with you so much! Enjoy your holiday. We had our Thanksgiving with Ronda and the grandbabies a couple weeks ago. My Ron and I are eating pizza and having a championship Wii bowling session, instead. Love to you and your family! ❤

  2. You did a nice job combining the challenges. The haiku is lovely and very true. I like what you did with the image, it looks like an oil painting. I hope you had a wonderful time with your boy. Could you believe there’s only 3 weeks before Christmas? 😮
