Latest work: "Falling Leaves Crescent Moon"

Early evening I looked out my hotel window in Kyoto and saw a crescent moon. Directly below it was a single little fluffy cloud. As though the moon was going to "nest" into the cloud. Or the cloud was slowly rising up to support the moon. Either way I looked at it, it was magical.

I found this image in my "Works in Progress" file yesterday afternoon and it made me think of that moon, that cloud, the falling leaves in Japan. So I brought it up, tweaked some things, added some more things, and voila! Now I have an image that's reminiscent of Kyoto, autumn leaves, meticulously raked rock gardens, and more.

Unlike yesterday's image, this one definitely works. I love it. And isn't it a good story? ©Carol Leigh
