Jean, Haha! Thanks. You know we have several pet king snakes. One lives in our well house and one lives in a rock rubble next to the driveway. They keep away the copperheads and the water mocs. We must always be careful though out here in the country. It is great that we don't have many mice though with three cats and the snakes.:eek:

Amanda, Many thanks my friend for your clever and kind comment!:):):)

Mike, Be careful backing up too!:eek:
You will have to go to the rabbit hole at least once while you are in AR and try this. ;):cool::)
Thanks for your nice comment, but I will be waiting to see what you come up with.:cool::D

Oh thank gosh we only have bears and wolves to contend with and of course the deer :D , You are so brave to live with all those snakes :eek:

Al, Thank you. Don't be afraid though, there are many good snakes out there that are here to prevent the plague and keep the eco in balance.:)

Silvy, So good to see you here again. Thanks so much!:)

Jean, You're so lucky! Bears and wolves. How cool is this?!:cool: (envy here) We have the deer and the coyotes, fox and racoons, and the beloved opossums.:D

Thanks Jo. This was especially fun. I got the idea from one of Peter's threads, and started thinking, hum....this would be great. So I splashed different colors with different tools of green's and duplicated the layer. I used difference and took the eraser as the tool to draw the snakes. That is where the greens come through. I combined layers and drew their faces and used the grass stamps and made another layer for the flowers.:)

Great painting Sandra!!! I'm so glad I don't have many snakes where I live... The occassional gardener surprises me once in a while but that is about it. Rattle snakes are here but I have (luckily) never seen one. I like how the addition of the flowers make this a playful image... almost makes me like snakes...almost!:D

Thanks so much Eddie. You know I have been very fortunate. Most that I have seen tried to avoid me. I thought I would help my husband once with the house. I lifted a board and there were two copperhead babies underneath! I quickly said a Thank You prayer and had instant respect for these small but powerful creatures. We live across from a lake also and let's just say I have to keep the grass cut short because of the water moc's or cotton mouths. That is why I keep cats and dogs out here.:eek::D

You found another thing to gloop! Very nice, Sandra! :D:):D

Alexandra

EB, haha! Thanks. I like them but only from a distance.:eek::D

Chris, Thank you. Sadly it is an addiction. You are young, so I will stress the importance of staying away from gloop.:rolleyes::p:D

Actually works very well, for all the odd imagery. Looks like the garden's up to its asp in temptation. . . If an asp gasps is it called aspiration? I see plenty of aspiration herein then. . . and no small amount of success. Well done, Alexandra! Keep sticking your arm down the hole like a magician reaching into his hat. Presto! :eek::):):):):)

Chris, Maybe the gloop is the precious, yes.....
One gloop to rule them all, One gloop to find them,
One gloop to bring them all and in the darkness bind them!:eek::p:o
(I know, pretty bad, huh?):o:o:o

D Akey, Up to its asp?!? I beg your pardon sir! Hee hee, thanks a bunch Dear Man!:D

And something that the gloop did not expect! A talented painter. One of the few people to create what goes on in their heads. :D:D:D:D

Love all the layers. I can tell you had fun with this one. The grass is great! I've been practicing, Sandy, but I get frustrated.... Now, if I can remember how to upload my pics....

Alexandra

Chris, Thank you-you dear heart! What a nice comment, and I appreciate it so much.:):):):):):)

Val, Thanks so much. I think I like it so much because I have so much control with it. If you don't lift it, and just doodle, it can make such fun images.:)

Bluemoon, Sis, let's get together or either try over the phone. It is one of the best programs that I have ever used. The only negative thing is, don't use this after eight o'clock at night, you will suffer serious loss of time and sleep.:eek::D
