Yellow Flowers in Blue Vase

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 21 November 2009 in Plant & Nature.

I applied two of my textures to the original floral image.

I am feeling low today because my 12 year old black lab has a non-functioning front leg due to a tumor eating away the bone. We have a difficult decision to make tomorrow. See yesterday's post for a photo of me with Charcoal.


I have been INTERVIEWED three times by photo-buddies:

- Orange Dahlia
- Pumpkin Light
- Swallowtail Butterfly
- Sunrise in Window
- Wisteria
- Geese Crossing Road

Oh, wow. This is the work of a master. Everything comes together in a piece of profound beauty. (I'm sad to hear of your pet's illness. I've lost a companion pet and know the pain and sorrow you are feeling.)
