Assignment to myself: Create an abstract collage from an 'abstract' photo. This collage was inspired by the photo taken on a previous post, 'calm after the storm'. ( By the way.....Thanks Mother and Daddy for allowing us to use the lakehouse!! The broken dock boards are being repaired as this posts...love you!) I have no idea how I got the result from the inspiration picture. It just took on a mind of it's own. The words say 'appreciate gifts.......and fix them when they break'. Just as soon as you borrow something of someone else's and you are the one totally responsible, there is an accident, or it breaks, or something happens! That's what happened to us during the storm at the lake....under our watch!
