Wow! another true work of art from your good self!
I particularly like the the Easter Egg Dye shades used in this one and how you have the blurred butterfly like layer over the 'desktop' area.
Your use of metalic shades and glass effects never ceases to impress me.
I must admit I have found inspiration in some of your pieces and I admire the vast majority of your work.
Well done!

Every morning I will rest my arms a while upon the windowsill of heaven, gaze upon God, and with that vision in my heart turn strong to meet my day.

Hello Nathan, your expression of the true meaning of Easter is truely conveyed to us in your photograpic story of that supreme and glorious day!! You have told the spiritual depth of Easter and what it should mean in color and design and have done it masterfully! With my imagination I can just feel it! I know what it really means to you and that it does exists in your heart! Beautiful! Sincerely, Marilyn

I'm pleased you enjoyed the image. There's a lot of symbolism in this one. The jewel represents the physical - the ghostly, colorful butterfly represents spirit. Easter Morn celebrates the reuniting of body and spirit. It is a beautiful message of comfort and peace to those who've lost loved ones, and a certain reassurance of a reunion in the future. Thank you for all the kind comments.
