What’s in Your Heart?

COVID-19 has done a number on hearts around the globe. It’s made them fearful and angry, frustrated and confused. They’re impatient. Restless. Bored and lonely and just want everything to get back to normal again. At least that’s what my heart has been feeling these days. So, to help keep my mind off the bad and the ugly I created some happy hearts that I hope will brighten your day.

Say it with Pictures

My first grade teacher taught her pupils the alphabet using big flash cards with pictures. And for some odd reason, the letter S with a picture of a snake on it was my favorite one and the only one that still sticks out in my mind. So, in my case, a picture is truly worth a thousand words. If you like pictures more than words, then you will like my word art creations.

A Touch of Wimsey: Digital Art

Computers are fantastic. Till they’re not. Mine died and I had to buy a new one. Then, I had to re-install all my art programs only to discover that one of my favorite plugins, Eye Candy 4000, no longer worked. Finally, after figuring everything out, I’m up and running and will try my best to get caught up on reading everyone’s posts.

Before my computer crashed, I was working on this post. I finally finished it today. Enjoy!

Digital Art: Butterflies and Dragonflies

 

Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. The Christian religion sees the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life.

The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world, symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self-realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life.

I’ve been working on my creations for the past several days and enjoyed every minute of it. They would have been so much easier and faster if I could draw. But, since I can’t, I created them using various shapes. Of course, there’s a lot more to it than that. But, thanks to PaintShop Pro, I have all the tools I need to stretch and manipulate those shapes into anything I want them to be. So, you see? You don’t have to know how to draw to create fun and inspiring designs. You just have to have a little imagination.

Shapes that I used are circles, hearts, bows, and flower leaves. After creating an image, I added color and special effects using the tools in PaintShop Pro 2019 ultimate. Other, more in-depth effects are plugins that I downloaded to Paint Shop Pro. My favorites are Harry’s Filters http://www.thepluginsite.com and Flaming Pear http://www.flamingpear.com

 

I hope you enjoy my creations and that they put a smile on your face.

Surviving C-19 the Fun Way

I don’t know about you, but I’m really getting sick and tired of being stuck inside. I miss being with my family and friends. I miss eating out and shopping. I miss seeing real-live people in real-live places. Netflix can only do so much to keep me entertained. It’s a good thing I love to create!

From a Mushroom to and Angel: Digital Art

I like looking at objects and seeing something else entirely. Like looking at clouds and seeing faces or a cat or a dinosaur. That’s what I did with this mushroom. Instantly I saw a beautiful dress and decided that it would look great on an angel.

I created my angel using PaintShop Pro 2019. For the dress and wings, I used the mushroom shape. The face, hair, halo, bow, and flower are picture tubes. I created the wings and dress using the warp tool in PaintShop pro. I also used it to reshape the hair and the face. Then I added texture and color for the finishing touches.

You Can Do Anything if You Want to Bad Enough

Digital DrawingThis is my first attempt at digital drawing. I don’t draw using a pencil and paper let alone using a mouse and a computer screen. I create most of my designs using picture tubes or photos. Sometimes, I create them using shapes and the warp tool in PaintShop Pro. That’s a lot of fun. But, today, I actually drew a face using the pallet knife tool. Several times I thought of trashing it. But, I kept working with it till I was finally satisfied.

I had the most trouble with the eyes. I’m still not 100% happy with them, but they’re better than they were before I changed them a million times.

I used to draw as a kid, but I never thought I was good at it, so I took up other interests, like playing the accordion, organ, and piano. And I enjoyed singing, too. So, what drawing skills I may have had are full of spiders and cobwebs, now.

Thanks for stopping by! 

A Crab’s Life through a Child’s Eyes

Talon, my great-grandson is six going on twenty. He is smart and quirky and extremely perceptive for his age. When he looks at you it’s as if he can see into your soul. I love this little boy. He is truly a gift!

With my granddaughter’s permission, I’ve posted Talon’s written school assignment. It is just too darned cute not to share.

Digital Art: Owl With Many Faces

So, as I mentioned before, I like owls. I like digital art, too, and creating different effects and textures. Today, I created one owl and gave him many different faces using PaintShop pro 2019 Ultimate and lots of color and texture. I hope you enjoy Mr. Owl.
