I was playing around with one of my tintypes of a young man and decided to transpose it with a tree I had photographed at Rockefeller State Preserve. I wanted this slight haunted look to it (of course, heaven forbid I work with butterflies and flowers in pastels).
I worked with the stormy sky that was in my photograph and laid a texture of sky from Photomorphis over it. It gives it a slight painterly feel to it. I then placed this off center black border around it because I like it framed this way.
