This was painted from a beautiful challenge photo on Lee Brown's blog— A Day Not Waisted.
Lee has amazing photos for each month's challenge. This month he shares info on a Photoshop plugin called Topaz Simplify for Digital Simplification—I looked and there is a free trial. The sad thing for me is my computer is too old for it. :( I think a visit to Santa might be in order. :)
