You’ve had one of those days … seems like everything you touched went wrong … everybody you spoke with was confrontational … you almost feel like you need a reset button on life.

We’ve all had those kinds of days. What’s the solution? Lots of us head for a stiff drink, some of us for a long walk, some dive into a good book, some just vege in front of the television. But instead of a reset button, maybe we should all have a reset place … a spot where we can take a few moments to collect ourselves, get back in touch with our dreams. A place without phones or computers or other noises and distractions where we can take a long, refreshing deep breath … and find serenity.

This particular image is a landscape version of a previously posted vertically oriented work that I named “A Restful Retreat.” Both images were created from my own original photographic work using the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikkor lens, and taken at the home of a dear friend, in Annandale Virginia. This view was worked on and created in Photoshop CS6 then finished in Corel Painter 2015 and completely digitally hand-painted with the Wacom tablet and brushes.


Would love for you to click on the image so you can see it at much better resolution and with a watermark with a lighter touch.  Also, lots of purchase options, including our new shower curtain offer!!

As always, comments appreciated … maybe let me in on your favorite ways to “reset” and get back to a serene place in life!!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
