Picasa has these new photomanipulation effects. This is a "pencil sketch" with a vignette and some darkening. For many years I collected terra cotta animal pots and figures which now lurk in my garden. This is one of my favorites, a rabbit, who has more delicate modeling than most. Before I left the California garden this year, I took some more portrait photographs of my anumals. And tonight I did this with it--instead of writing several emails that I promised myself to write. Anyway, I am blogging almost every other day during blog-every-day-November. Excelsior!
