Dear Lee, You seem to have created a mould You may paint with many rutilant colors and palettes for printing any season colors. Really beautiful outcomes from that model of stylized tree.
A fantastic creation and an interesting discovery. I tend to forget the blur and adjust color feature which are however very useful under certain circumstances to trim a work that doesn't seem convincing graphically or chromatically.

Dear Caesar and Bobbyray, Thank You both very much, just can't seem to get into spring cleaning but spring pictures? much easier:o, the gray painting was an accident, was working on the middle painting and was looking for a dreary color on another layer and it the gray got dumped onto the colorful one and that was the outcome, i make a lot of stencils for something like this,, thanks again, have a nice day!!!:)

Hi Lee,

Looks great, like you've been looking at art for different ideas. I'm impressed. The graphic quality is very pleasing. It's sort of Grandma Moses with art classes under her belt. There's a whole movement who have stylized folk art and taken it to a fine art form. This is soft and inviting.

The tree has a primitive feel (by primitive I mean designed using a basic shape), but it's cool cause so do the flowers. The reuse of the shape is very nicely handled and you took the opportunity to introduce colors there. And of course the rainbow border holds it all together and gives an optimistic tone to the rainy day. You're using graphics pretty nicely, Lee. Lovely art work!

By the way, the gray one on the left reminds me of the captured Han Solo by Jabba the Hut.

Very good coloring and composition. It is nice to have both paintings to compare too, that makes good impact on the color introduction.:)

Everyone else has provided their admiration, which I favor. It reminds me of a triptych. Still in use, but most related to early 13th century paintings of saints that were carried folded from cathedral to cathedral.
