This is my digital entry for The Three Muses challenge this week where the theme is (Nature). I based this piece on a beautiful marsh area (Rush Creek) where I regularly take hikes with my dog . The background is made from a photo of some old burl lumber from my yard and the moon is a photo I took early one morning. The moths are rising with the moon (phototactic beings that they are) and I added the pixie (Dover) for a little enchantment. Rush and reeds are digitally made. Artistic brushes were used for coloring where the lighting on the 'water' (which is basically wood grain from the burl photo) happened magically with added gradient mixtures in Photoshop.
