New iPad, iPod and iPhone case designs

I’ve been adding iPad and iPod/iPhone case designs as a new product option for previously published artwork. These can be viewed by clicking on the “iPad cases” or “iPod/iPhone cases” buttons in the “Buy it” toolbar on each page, but they can also be viewed as a collection by clicking on the link I’ve added to my profile page .

The Artful Flower - A video slideshow presentation

Here’s a LINK to my first try at creating a video-slideshow featuring photographs from my Artful Flower and Wildflower series. The video is titled Artful Flower and is posted on the WithamPhoto Facebook Fan page. (I don’t think they’re actually called Fan pages anymore, but that’s where it is.)
