Great processing and extremely creative though a little grisly. Reminds me a little of those molds of embracing couples excavated from ancient volcanic eruptions. Well done, and a worthy addition to Piet's upcoming exhibit, which may be named Morbid, a word that has a rather nice sound to it despite its implications. You know how to make morbid beautiful, quite a gift.

Thank you Minnie, My exhibit can be right in front of yours, that way they will get to yours faster! Thank you Chuck, also, thank you for helping me know that psJunkie is Frank. I had missed that one. I was kind of rough on psjunkie in some comments on his portrait the other day, but now I'm OK with that!!!!!

Gee, I hope he doesn't mind that I "outed" him. :oops:
Friends call me Chuck. :photo: This link takes you to my Flickr albums. Please click on any album to scroll through it.
(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

I think perhaps he was wondering why I had been treating him so nicely!

LOL - thank you for your vote of confidence. My selling / money making / marketing skills land at ZERO. If you wish to try to sell it for me, I would be happy to drop box a higher resolution image to you - our split would be 80 percent you, 20 percent me!!! And I would be ecstatic.
