The original assignment was to create a black and white image and play with it in PhotoShop. While this isn't a B&W image, I learned something new from Kim Klassen about the Adjustments window in PhotoShop. What an amazing tool. More to learn, thought. Stay tuned.
I used my own image of white and red peonies I picked up at the Scottsdale, AZ, Trader Joe's last Tuesday. Then burned it into a B&W image followed by adding a texture layer from Kim Klassen and then a brush from Klassen, also.
The meaning of the peony is shame or bashfull. I don't like the shame part but bashful? You betcha.
