Pai, Thank you very much. I am so happy that you liked this. There is an old version of The Body Snatchers I think from the 50's that I really liked. These pod like plants would take sleeping bodies and clone them and devour the original. If you haven't seen it, check it out some time. One of my favorite thrillers.:D
Evelyn, Thank you so much, I too love so many colors and sometimes I go overboard, but hey, that's art!:D

Awwwww Cesare!!! Thank you so much! :):):):):)
I also found that when I used the watercolor brush with no water I could get an interesting gloopy effect. That is how I made the veins in the petals. I keep finding more and more interesting tools.

It's so beautiful, I think I'd like a whole garden of 'em.
Terrific work - and yes, you really are on a role this whole month. :)

Oh Cesare, you don't need any tips! You are a master artist!

Thank you so much Byron, but these flowers lull you into a deep slumber and then clone you. You know, maybe this is not so bad after all. If the original person would be all right that is. I would love to clone myself, leaving the cloned me home, and take off somewhere just for a month or two.:o:o:o

I've always wanted a clone that could take care of all of the little things, like flossing. I wonder how that would work. Hmmm. :D

You gave me a chuckle Byron. Yes, flossing is a total drag!
