Swan in Wood

I love to peruse the mountains of driftwood tossed along our beaches in winter storms. I came upon this amazing Swan in Wood on one of those wandering forays. Isn't she lovely? As you can see I didn't have to enhance much--though adding in all those feathers took some time.

Above you see the swan as I first found her.

Drift wood is so wonderful...and this is a particularly lovely piece wih such an elegant swan face. What a beautiful find.
I hope you are all doing okay.
I'm fine I'm just a little busy so I haven't had as much blogging time.
Take care of you...Love you.

Isn't it amazing how often driftwood will resemble an animal or fantasy creature?

I felt like I had missed so much, then when I checked your site I was instantly filled once again with the beauty you share with us.... I love the swan, for sure this was created by God and captured by you, to remind us of all He is and can be if we open our eyes and minds....

The Eagle made my heart soar and gave me cause to stop and say thank you.....Thank you God for our freedoms, our strengths and the beauty in our world.

And Thank you Beth, for showing us these reminders in your own very special talent......

What a great find! I like your enhancements.

I was happy to find a giraffe in driftwood once.

You have such a wonderful eye! I am enjoying my journey through your blog tonight.
