In The Flower Garden are Butterflies and Ground Squirrels by 

This summer we have had a lot of gophers, ground squirrels and rabbits enjoying our backyard. Unfortunately the yard has suffered but the critters are thriving. This image was inspired by all this activity occuring in our flower beds. Look carefully, the ground squirrels are just peeking up out of the flowers.

An image of flowers and one of ground squirrels used to create this summer scene. Flowers were digitally manipulated. Squirrel was copied and cloned into the image. Butterflies are Digea brushes distorted. Dry brush and rough pastels filters used. Other lighting and color adjustments.

I am happy to share my vision with you and I hope that it touches you in some small way.

    Beautiful Carol…I do see those little critters hiding here and there. Very creative my dear.

  • Thank you Donna. My husband is going crazy trying to keep them from eating everything. Lol. Our dog watches them all day but she is to slow to catch any of them, thank goodness. We have a regular nature preserve in the backyard.

    You are getting so creative these days Carol, this is just gorgeous!! great subject and colours!!

  • I kind of like to branch out a little. I’m always trying to learn more. Problem is I can’t always remember what all I have done to achieve some of the effects. I really enjoy the creative part of digital art. Thank you for the nice positive feedback. I appreciate it.
