*The nifty light effect on the painting is not my mad artistic skills, nor was it a result of my fledgling skills in Gimp. Rather that beautiful glow came from the kitchen light, which is usually so unfriendly. *shrugs* I’m honest. 🙂 I did have fun painting this and it came very close to what I envisioned at the start. Today’s art challenge was “a light in the dark” and this was my interpretation. I hope you like it.
