gears and grunge

Keeping with the week's theme, I give you Gears and Grunge. This took me awhile to like and even longer to attempt. Even now, I'm not always really comfortable with it. Probably because my mother taught me to clean house every Saturday when I was young and it sort of stuck with me, so this grunge stuff bothers me a bit. But, here it is!

So, is the grunge style shown here to your liking? Do you like Steampunk, too? Do you like the "almost abstract"? It can be quite challenging to create digitally. I think it would be easier to achieve in mixed media or just paints. Finding the right elements to use to combine and get the effect you're looking for can be quite difficult and time-consuming. I do hope you enjoyed this presentation.
Enjoy the rest of your Thursday! Don't miss tomorrow's book review trio on The Grantham Girls by Amanda Weaver.

Have a great weekend!
