Free Wallpaper! Silence

Silence stripI feel like my mind races at 120 mph ninety-five percent of the time, but before it gets in gear, I try to find some peace and quiet. This means as soon as I get up I try to isolate myself. I close the door and avoid family ( I have a big one). It helps me prepare for the day ahead. I get some meditative reading done, put things in perspective, affirm what I’m grateful for, and review my tasks for the day. One day this past week, it hit me, even if surround myself with silence, it’s still not quiet. I can still hear myself breathe and feel my heart beat. Yay for being alive! So that inspired me to create this wallpaper I call Silence. It took approximately 3 hours in Photoshop. Enjoy! Feedback is welcome.

Free Wallpaper: Love Is Paradise

February is the Month of the Heart and most notably Valentine’s day. So my free wallpaper this month revolves around the heart. Actually the cherry heart in this piece was created for another project, but I ended up using something else. I couldn’t just let it sit there wasting away in my folder, so I decided it would be perfect for my February wallpaper. There are 2 options available; the “clean” and the “dirty” version. I find that I usually do okay with predominantly white backgrounds for my pieces (it must be the minimalist in me), but I wanted to challenge myself with more intensive backgrounds, hence the dirty version. Here is my first effort. Hope you enjoy and I appreciate constructive criticism.
