It has been so long since I posted last that I almost forgot how to log on to this thing. That's what happens when you sometimes "hit the wall" with photography or any other creative endeavor. For whatever reason, it seems that you become so distracted with other goings on that you tend to get detached from the thing that gives a lot of pleasure. Tonights offering is a result of a little walk that my wife and I took a week ago down at the Naval Yards in Amhurstberg, Ont. There was a nice bed of tulips there, but when I got closer, it was obvious that they were about to wilt and die. But I took a shot or two anyway, and thought I might like to play with them a little bit in Corel Painter Essentials 3, and Corel Paint Shop Pro x4. The result is a pretty clumsy piece of artwork as I have not used the Painter Essentials before. But for a first effort, it will have to do. By the way, Happy Mother's Day to all of the Mothers out there today.
