A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: wheresoever it turns, it prospereth...
Proverbs 17:8
---------------------
Today we went Christmas shopping and I am in the process of wrapping some of the gifts that we bought. I did something different with this self portrait..I added the watercolor filter in photo shop..I normally don't do that as I generally like my self portraits to be natural as a rule but I wanted to do an impressionist effect on this one.

    Your lighting is always lovely. The special effect today is nice too. Norman Rockwell would be proud.
