"THE CHOICE"

This image was also created in Fractal Design's Painter 4.0. Like the one on the previous page, it was done using the Pen tool, Quick Curve tool, Fill, Brush strokes, Apply Surface Texture, Invert Selection, and Glass Distortion Effects

Again, I applied these tools and effects many times before any kind of recognizable 
image appeared and it surprised me to find two figures, or two faces and a suggestion 
of their bodies emerging from behind and through some vague objects.

The dismal figure on the left evokes in me thoughts of the infamous "klan", or the worst in us. The face on the right makes me think of the wise, honorable, intelligent, and dear old men of my childhood. He appears to me to be holding an upright cross, moving forward, and leaving the dismal behind him. 

Since I'd just finished reading C.S. Lewis' "The Great Divorce" and was reminded of good and evil and our freedom to choose between them, I named this image "The Choice".

Or.. you could say I just had to make a story out of all this color and motion. ;o)
