Thought for today:
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. ~ Hebrews 13:2

My collection of angels were quite challenging. Most of them I gathered from the cemetery. Hey, beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to using free images. Besides, I like a challenge and I love re-creating sculptures. If you are familiar with creating your own picture tubes, then you know the process of erasing the background and cleaning up the rough edges that the eraser tool leaves behind. I do that by using the soften tool. Then comes my favorite part: adding color and texture. Like I said, these angels were challenging. The angel on the swing (027) got deleted six times before I was finally satisfied with her!

Stand for something, even if you have to stand alone. Often times, the one who flies solo has the strongest wings.

11 Facts About Sphynx Cats | Mental Floss

I had the privilege of actually holding and petting a Sphynx. He was velvety soft and loving and affectionate. I wanted to take him home with me, but his owner wouldn’t have liked that. I love everything about these strange-looking cats and if I didn’t have two dogs and a husband that doesn’t like cats, I’d buy one. Well, maybe. They are rather expensive, not to mention they stay hungry all the time. Oh well. I can admire them and use them in my digital designs. Enjoy!

During courtship, a male penguin will find the smoothest pebble to give to a female as a gift. If she likes the offering, she’ll place it in the nest and the two will continue building up their little pebble mound in preparation for the eggs. Google Feb 12, 2016
