Have you ever created something you really loved in less than ten minutes? And afterwards it felt almost too easy? Like any good piece of artwork can only come after some epic struggle, featuring sleepless nights, cursing and exhausting?

Nah. Sometimes, it really IS that easy.

This picture was exactly what I needed, and I love it. I was having one of THOSE days. You know the ones. The kind of day where absolutely nothing catastrophically bad happens, yet EVERYTHING feels excruciatingly annoying. The cable won’t work. The baby won’t stop whining. You can’t get five minutes alone. You want to scream out your frustration over…everything and nothing, all at the same time.

The baby fell asleep, I jumped on the computer and just started playing, without too much thought as to what I was doing. All I knew was that I wanted to play around with transparent layers. After four of five false starts where I got halfway done and then scrapped the whole thing, I ended up with this.

I love it, and my head finally feels cleared. Sometimes art is awesome like that.
