They're going to be so much fun....I've had a blast trying to decide which direction to take them.....glad you want to play, too, Coops!

Here's what I came up with this morning, playing around with the concept of film and negatives....made a black and white image of the single blossom face, imported it as a stencil and then just farted around with it until I was satisfied:

Sandy, you have caught the delicateness and grace of the flower form.
Scott! What a great idea! I especially admire the texture of the pollen on the stamens.....
