This image started out as a photo of a white night blooming cereus cactus.  I thought the flower was a little flat so I added some pink to the white petals to give the image more punch.

“Screaming Peace” began as a photo of a Peace rose.  Next I added several layers of colors and textures.   Then I distorted the rose to make it look like the center of the rose was screaming.  I wish we all could all scream for peace in this world then maybe it would happen.  If only it was that easy.
