Refracted Portrait by HeatherHorton Refracted Portrait by HeatherHorton
"Refracted Portrait"

"Water, thou hast no taste, no color, no odor; canst not be defined, art relished while ever mysterious. Not necessary to life, but rather life itself, thou fillest us with a gratification that exceeds the delight of the senses."
- Antoine de Saint-Exupery

You capture the 'every day' and turn it into something magical. There are some amazing artist in the world and you are one of them.

I wonder if you prefer the original to be viewed with some distance, as with Impressionism, or up close? Look up close at a Monet and you see brushstrokes; step back and you get the big picture. In this one perhaps the water droplets are emphasized when viewed up close; with distance it's a person behind wet glass. It looks cool on the computer screen, but I bet it has much more impact in person.
