Almost drawing-cartoon like here.

The original is part of a hanging Butterflies, long, dangling, transparent, plastic decoration with beads, hanging on a kitchen curtain rod. I took it as one of the use-it-up film, throw-away shots. The BG is my boat-ramp beach view.
I cropped n altered the graphic in Jasc Paintshop Pro 7.0, which I paid good bux for, n has served me well. Only one effect was used on each example shown. The possibilties are endless, too bad my free time isin't...
These pics may soon end up as card-covers. Now you see why I design Greeting Cards often also- when I can get the printer to co-operate, that is.
Thanks for the idea of posting altered graphic elements, LLCoolJoe n Talon- I'll try to periodically get more of this stuff up, tho I'm horrible at sticking to weekly things- n avoid schedules when I'm trying to have fun...

Hey they look very cool, I love them all. I know what you mean about weekly things, but I actually find it helps me to focus on something. I'm the kind of person that never sees anything through if I don't give myself deadlines.

Thanks for the link, and I'm so glad I came here to see your excellent work. :)

Very cool, Snaggle.

Neat stuff! I really like the second one - reminds me of Jack Frost images on windows. The red is so pretty! Glad you found a little time to play.

Super-duper nice!

I really like them all in their own way, and fun to see the "realism" slowly creep in as they presented themselves.

What's that -- a table outside? Oh no, the roof of a carport, I think.

LLcoolJ, Thanks, glad I helped to entertain your eyes today. I have so many deadlines in work n real life- Sometimes it can help our motovation.

Lynn, Thanks. Almost a Hippie post-

Talon, Thankyou, Yes it reminds me of window frost too- n seems so painterly. It was a "Fir" filter. You have to fill in the settings to get it how you want tho-

David, Happy 'Tober for you too, over there on the other side of the continent! That may be the next text inside the card...

JanF, Far Out- Groovey.
That's the "R"s front porch roof, which is only about ten feet away from my place. Cottages are crowded in here- why I adore being across from the woods. I kept it in to add to the "What's That?" factor of the altered images.

Ooohhh pretty images....

Funny, I see similar stuff after spending three hours posting salary info on tiny litte cards.

The first one is my favorite too. I like those colors. You have inspired me. I will have to give it a try too.

G, colored spots swimming in your eyes from eye strain, eh? Get extra strong reading glasses before you go blind!

Cookie, Thamks. I believe that effect was called "colored foil" for which I had to choose a color. Altering images is fun- go for it! Both Lynn n Talon have links to a free program to play with

Beautiful images. You are a very talented artist. Each person can learn a lot from reflecting on the messages he is sending out into the world. The colors you use express love and positive energy of transformation. This is great!

Yet, many people are unaware they send mixed messages into the void. Every energy vibration is asking the universe for something. You may not realize what you ask for s always what you get. Consider for example, you create incredible art yet simultaneously describe yourself as a "starving artist" on this website. Expressing scarcity sends that message out in the form of unseen energy. This reinforces and actually invites conditions that contradict the abundance you invite with your artwork. In order to rise above them, it would help to promote a sense of abundance instead.

Liara, Thankyou for appreciating n enjoying my artful playing. It was fun to do. I wish I could soon have more energy to devote to playing.
You have a good point about my use of descriptive adverbs. If I would soon get paid more for doing my art, this could be remedied. I understand "the vibration sending" about which you refer.

Perhaps I can soon figure out how to decribe myself more positively, while still remaining humble n truthful.
