Blossoms

Tis springtime in the rainy mid-south. I took these in between thumderboomers the other day. Enjoy painting and playing with them.

Re: Blossoms

gorgeous flowers. dont cha just love that spring is finally here?

filter forge authors are pretty clever. they're also pretty odd at times there are many distortion and warped types of filters in the current library. this was one i just happened to be playing with earlier today and so, it was set as the default when i opened up the flower image in it. i thought it was novel enough to post.

edit: ok, another filter forge filter treatment on this second one:

Re: Blossoms

nice, steve. very painterly.

and palms, i like your use of textures lately, this one included. that one sort of looks like someone spray painted on an adobe or sandstone wall. very cool

Re: Blossoms

Craig that 1st one is spooky, looks like something out of ALIEN, I don't want to be around when they hatch. - very good.

Steve Glad to see you not going cold turkey on the flower front - I like that

Palms weren't you the one who said she was no good at textures - if I remember, well you certainly learn fast. Thats good.

Janet Lovely pictures, thank You.

Peter

That is so sweet lkroll, but are they smarties in the background or m&m's ?
