If I Were Judith... this would be a real painting.
I have always admired paintings like Judithheartsong's but my expertise is limited to fingerpaints so when I discovered the many different tools available in my Paintshop Pro I went crazy and turned just about every picture into a water color. Of course if I were an artist I'd probably be striving to get my paintings to look like a photograph. Theres just no pleasing me.
The Accidental Portrait
I gave up on this picture as soon as I took it several weeks ago. It wasn't until this morning when I opened it up and cropped the center to enlarge it that I discovered the bee who had been buzzing around while I had been taking pictures. Of course, if I had a camera like Sepintx's you'd be able to see up the bee's nose! Maybe if I'm good for the rest of the year Santa might bring me a macro lens.
