A Portrait


"Though we travel the world over
to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us
or we find it not."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thank you to the superbly talented Tom Atkins of The Creativity Blog for gifting me with the above portrait. Tom is a wonderful artist who uncovers awesome inspiration in simple everyday things, thus carrying beauty in his heart and mind wherever he goes.
Why not try sending Tom your favorite colored picture? Who knows....he just might decide to surprise you with your own painting!

Woohoo!

Glad you liked it enough to show it off. You're a lovely lady Irene - looney or not. You make a great muse to those that love you, and bring a lot of joy to a lot of people here, it seems!

For all of you who have admired this "portrait", don't be so impressed. It's just a picture that he colored over on his computer using a special software. I think it is called paintbox. As for all the other comments about his poetry etc... Don't be so gullible. This man can write a great line, but it's all an act. He can't deal with people especially women in reality so he does it via the internet. Sorry to burst your bubble, but when was the last time heard of a person being what they professed to be on the internet?
