Re: Old Man

This thread is over a year old now; and every time I travel down the road Mr. Plumlee lives on, I look to see if he is still watching over his cows. Another year older, and he is thin as a rail. I sometimes take him a plate of this or that but often wonder if he remembers to eat it. His memory and personality are failing, yet twice a day I can find him in the pasture with his four-legged friends. I'll know when his time has come when the cows are no longer tended and the hay on the side of the road isn't getting used.

Here is a chalked portrait of him carrying hay.

Re: Old Man

Re: Old Man

I tried my Filter Forge plugin (Cartoonizer) on this one, and it seemed to work nicely. This is also my first post on this forum section.

and thanks for the update, janet had a go at it. this is entirely 'belevel screeening', a filter forge filter, which i revised for more versatility. the original author is juan paolo kutianski.

Re: Old Man

Just a note to everyone --

I haven't worked on this yet, but I wanted to congratulate all of you who have done so. The story of the man is very heartwarming and all of your work is too.

Lorraine
