Hello! Take a Word asked for TRUE HAPPINESS. The day of the wedding, the birth of the first child or the long awaited trip to Paris are exhilarating moments of immense joy. However, for me, true happiness is being at peace with myself and have serenity. Happiness is something that is within us and can not depend on others. With this collage I tried to transmit this feeling of peace and serenity. I hope I have succeeded.
This collage was also inspired by artist Catrin Welz-Stein which is the current challenge in the group Digitalmania on Flickr.
