Where has the artist gone?
One is lost in the digtal art world. Canvas sits blank.

    Really love this, the lighting and colours are wonderful, and you’re right, digital makes it a lot easier, but then again, photoshop is not an easy program, and for people like me that couldn’t paint a stick figure, it’s a godsend lol!! But I know exactly what you mean! :)

  • Thank You Tracey & for faving. Yes..PhotoShop is sure not easy…It has been much more of a challenge than oils etc. for me. I am just now to the having fun in Photoshop stage…

    Very clever idea Carmen and well executed. I see you make the same mistake that I do sometimes….replying in the Comment Box. It’s easy enough done, but Tracey may not see your reply. :-) Just thought I’d point that out. >< Ron

  • Thank You Ron. I do these a lot in the wee hours of the morning…make sleepy mistakes…

    Beautiful! and true. I also neglect the canvas. It is less dirty than painting. Sad thing. You have a beautiful presentation here.

    Definitely love this. I love these kinds of images.

  • Thank You again Meg. I sure would love new oil paintings on the walls.
    Hope the paints don’t dry up before they get used…
    Thank you for the Fav!

    I will say Carmen that the reason this appeals to me so much is its simplicity and non-contrived natural look. It is beautiful in all its random and untidy elements. I love it to bits!

  • Thank you for such a wonderful compliment! I appreciate it more than I can say. I keep this shot as my screensaver to remind me those paints are still sitting there waiting to be used. I am so happy you like it as much as I do. Hugz, Carmen
