Gloop, watercolor, pen, pencil, stamps, glitter, and the knife. All AR3.

It is raining and cold here today. Needed a little pick me upper.
Hope you like it and it brightens your day.
With love,

You have used the gloop pen in a clever way. Isn't it surprising what comes out of these tools? Nice cheerful colors.

The bright, joyful yellow colour of these flowers is really a balm against lousy weather!

Thank you Dear Cesare. You know it has rained just about everyday here. Yesterday was a rain and snow mix. I guess with the lack of sun I need something bright-so I like to draw bright images. So happy that you liked it.:)

Wow, Alexandra. This is the ultimate in Springtime energy. It's as if you composed a lyrical poem about the subject. It's a representation of what the garden is. I think the translucence of the petals adds a personal grace to this. The stems are stout and very solid, where lots of nourishment can flow through them. And the bee is very busy with such an abundance of pollen.

Rich and full. An image of the dynamic force of life! Beautiful interpretation.

The yellow narcissus have indeed transparent petals and you increase this quality , the bees too have some transparencies in the wings,
and all is very well together , I like it Alexandra , very clever !:):):)

D Akey, What a beautiful, kind, and generous comment. Many thanks my Friend.:):):):):)

Dany, Thank you so much.:) This software is just too incredible at times. I used the gloop for the flowers constantly duplicating and turning and changing the sides-combining and changing effects. The little bees I drew with a pencil and airbrush and the special hair brush for the fuzzy bodies, duplicating the wings on another layer and turning them and changing the effects to give the look of movement. Whew! I had so many layers going!:eek:

Sandra, these are lovely. Even as we speak, the dillys are poking their shoots up through the mulch in my garden. I'll try to get some good photos.

It's a beautiful picture and amazing gloop tool use. Agree with Peter it is quite a symphony.

Doc, Thank you. I would love to see your photo's. You know, I am a bit concerned about mine. We have had a few armadillos and many moles, so maybe they are the reason for them missing. My camellias are in full bloom and forsythias are budding everywhere though, and I do have the fever!:)

Peter, Thank you so much for such a beautiful and generous comment. Much appreciated beyond any words Dear Friend!:)

Albert, I am so happy that you liked this one. I am afraid that I have joined Katie in the gloop addiction.:p I appreciate your viewing and kind comment!:)

Blasting, billowing, bursting forth with the power of 10 billion butterfly sneezes.

Hard to follow Robert's robust post, what with all that alliteration and all.
Anyway, it is indeed a celebration! Let Spring un-furl her banners and let down her long tresses, sending forth her radiant smile upon us.

These are killer Sandy - I have to jump on the bandwagon of enthusiasm. Beautiful. Count me in on the high-admirer list for this wonderful springtime vision. I particularly like your handling of the gloop pen - magical work. :)
