I remember as a child listening to this story read to me by my mother. Do you know this story? If not, it is really worth reading. It is a story of two children Kai and Gerda and the Snow Queen or Winter Queen. She kidnapped Kai to her cold palace and changed his heart to ice. The tears of love of his friend Gerda melted the ice in his heart and saved him. They were able to return together to their hometown, but in the meantime they noticed they become grown up. So they must have stayed with the Snow Queen much longer that they have realized. In this journey they have discovered how much power love really has and that it can remove huge obstacles.
The Snow Queen is this story was described as very beautiful, but also quite mean and cruel. I guess it was also personalizing how Andersen have seen winter and he was certainly right that winter can feel to us this way. This year in many part of the world in the North hemisphere, particularly in North America, winter is extremely harsh, so certainly it seems to live to it’s full powerful and cold image.
But is it really only so malicious and serious? Not really. Think about how beautiful the world often looks in winter. The fresh white snow makes it also looking more peaceful, ethereal and encourages people to rest and reflect. This time of the year can also be very good time to create new things and to dream about the future. Winter is also sometimes playful and creates conditions favorable for many activities not possible to do during warmer months when the snow is absent. That’s why particularity many children and sports enthusiast love it. Because of winter’s playful nature, I have chosen to depict my Winter Queen as more joyful personality.
How do you feel about winter? Do you like or hate it? Are there some special things you like to do during this time of the year? Please feel free to comment here and share this post with your friends.

Today I would like to feature a recently created digitally enhanced artwork I have done on request by one of my clients. He was actually photographed by another photographer – Iwona Michalczewska, based in New York since the client himself also lives in this city. It was not convenient for the client to come to Toronto to be photographed by me. With the permission of the photographer, he asked me to digitally enhance his fine art nude portrait.
In the past this client has purchased one of my limited edition artworks called “Gaia” and he wanted himself to be depicted in a very similar surroundings, but as an angel.
Together we have chosen his photograph, which I felt worked best for this project. I needed to enlarge the images a bit, since the final artwork was supposed to be 16×20″ fine art print. Then I did some retouching and masking of the original background. I have also decided to change the wings to other kind, which I though would work better. My next step was adding a halo of light around my client’s head. I have also added a sparkle to his sword, so it would look like reflecting a light of some distant star. Finally I have added a big moon, or perhaps a planet in the background as a finishing touch.
What you see here is only part of the artwork since it was full body frontal nude and I don’t want to show such on this blog. My client has given me permission to show this image to you, but he wants to remain anonymous and not recognizable, so on his request, I have covered his eyes on the picture with a black band.
If you could see the whole artwork, he is kneeling in the middle of a galaxy and part of his body is hidden in the mist rising from the dancing stars. The composition of the picture is very similar to the original “Gaia” image, which has inspired my client to ask me to create this artwork. But even if the composition and background are similar in both images, the final artwork looks very different and original.
I am attaching “Gaia” picture as a reference, so you can see what I mean.
As you can see, I can not only photograph you, but also digitally enhance pictures you already have, as long as their quality is good enough and you have the permission of the photographer to have it done.

I was recently approached by Ms. Amanda Edwards from England, who is presently working on her co-birthing book.
She has chosen me to work on enhancing photographs for this project.
She has envisioned stars shining from her models’ bodies symbolizing the merging of energies of the parents and their soon to be born baby.
I was very happy to work on this very interesting and spiritual assignment. I suggested that perhaps it would be a good idea to enhance the backgrounds as well to intensify the mood of the artworks.
I asked her to tell me about the experience of working with me. Here is what she said:
” I had some birth photos of mine enhanced by Renata. As we live in different countries, we never actually met, but we were able to work via email. We managed it successfully and Renata reproduced exactly what I asked her to do. She was generous with her time and expertise and nothing seemed too much trouble in producing exactly what I had in mind. I would be happy to use her again on future projects.”
I also very much enjoyed working on this project and felt honored to be selected to cooperate on it. I hope to be working on more projects for Ms. Edwards and on other photo-enhancing assignments in the near future.
To find out more about Ms. Edwards and her work, please check one of her websites at: http://www.awakentoheal.com/love2birth.php

Here is a sample of one of my older artworks – “Lady in a Veil”, which I have now enhanced in computer. I have made it slightly darker, as it was taken at night.
My idea behind this artwork was to show a lady, which seemed to appear as a ghost from the past era.
Originally this artwork was created in the darkroom by sandwiching 2 colour negatives when I was still a student at the Ontario College of Art (OCA – now called OCAD).
I used to love to spend hours in the darkroom printing my black and white, as well as colour images. Often quite surprising images would appear.
At this time computers were much less powerful and I was not using them yet to enhance my work. I always liked very much painterly effects and I was trying to create them in the darkroom, or later by painting by hand on my prints.
This artwork is available as limited editions archival prints.
Another version of this photograph was also printed on canvas and painted by hand using colour pastels. It is quite unique looking and one of the kind. I still have it and perhaps it will one day become a part of a museum collection. I certainly hope so.
