Hi, Lisa!! Good to see you here!! Very artistic creation, and wonderful play with those gorgeous colors! Care to tell us which flower you used :-)?
Much Aloha,

Thank you for your comments, Kevin and Stan! :)
Stan, to answer your question ... I didn't use a flower. This image stared out as just a few blobs of color on a white background, and as I began brushing and smudging ... the image you see took form. I used a similar technique for my other image also (The digital airbrush). Creating this image was a nice, creative change for me. I enjoyed creating it and am glad you like it. #980857
