Photo of the day by Jason P. Odell

I love adding textures to my images to give them an entirely new and artistic look. I combined an Authentic Paint™ texture with one of my Luminescent Painterly™ textures in Photoshop CC to create this composite image. I think it looks kind of like an aurora!

All of my textures are available for download here
