A lighthouse is comforting -guide through the dark.

Cool manipulation.

The original photo was quite difficult to work with ... once the colors began to come out, I felt like I was halfway home. :)

hpy:
No, they're not ... don't tell Susu! :O

SusuPetal:
It's time to raise the sail and take that cruise!

I like it when ordinary objects are given a sheen and new life... and the quote about the lighthouse-- lovely.

Thank you, Donna. What I especially liked about the quote was the fact that the image is of two water-based paint bottles that came with an easel set for my youngest granddaughter. From the bottle, through the brush, to the canvas, I could imagine, comes a lighthouse.

I like it...I thought they were bottles of bubbles, the blowing type not the drinking sort.

I have some "bubbly" of the drinking sort ... you pop the cork, I'll pour. :)
