My art muse hibernated and I've been playing around trying to entice a response of some kind from her. 

This piece was created using Adobe Elements and Bamboo Fun Tablet.

The dream-like quality rather appeals to me and the muted colors play against the snow white/long night that permeates the outdoors here. 

The writing on Tumblewords is always presented in draft quality and so are the images here. On occasion, I return to re-work words and color but more often I move on to the next piece. 

I've given up trying to decide what that means!
What's your style? Do you work, re-work and then post or do you create something that stirs you in some manner and let it age before deciding the next step?

Escape Motions

Sometimes I wonder what's wrong with me.
Fractals fascinate me, color and shape put me in a dreamy state.
There are so many drawing programs on the Internet and this newest find is capable of consuming days on end so I'd like to share it with you.
As always, I know only surface stuff but I'll return time and time again to learn more.
Following are samples of an hour's fun!
The figure on the left reminds me of an Indonesian dancer and the one on the right is a fractal, for sure!

Let me know what you learn and if you enjoy this kind of computer play!

Tablet Abstract

An exercise in color and shape using Bamboo Fun Tablet and Adobe Photoshop Elements.
I have much to learn about this process but the challenge is rewarding.
Sometimes the colors please me and the design doesn't and sometimes it's the reverse.
This is a fascinating process, each step is a surprise.
Soon, I'll try another picture. Oh, I just did.
There's a digitally painted pear blossom on Tumblewords Blog at Trembling for OSI.
Let me know what you're doing.
Are you using a tablet?

Winter White

Winter White

It's been a bit of a while since I've felt color inspired.

On the recent gloomy Sunday, I noticed some attractive leaves that refused to be cowed by cold and wind. In the background a low mountain appeared even lower by my urge to shoot straight up into the leaves.

It took only seconds to convert the monochrome of the day into black and white, drop a piece of CD reflection into the background for alteration and manipulation with the Bamboo Fun Tablet and Adobe Photoshop Elements. Then, into FrameFun (free software) which applied the frame. I'm sure I'll return to play again with it, but for now I'm smiling.

Somehow this gray day gleams a little lighter!
