  • Preston 3

    "Will it go round in circles? Will it fly high like a bird up in the sky?..." -- Billy Preston (1946-2006) (link) Shown smaller than the original finished size of 2244 X 2244 pixels. See one original source here.

  • Zoom 3

    I've got no airplanes and no oranges today, but the sky outside is gorgeous. So... I'm almost halfway there. ;) Shown smaller than the original size: 2500 X 3189. See one original source here.

  • Royal Roost 3

    I got a little obsessed with Blending functions. I wanted the duplicate chickens to look as if each one had different markings. The "wood" background texture is actually the Fibers filter. Shown smaller than the original finished size of 1334 X 1875 pixe…


  • Happy Hour 7 (Harvest Shuffle)

    I know, I know. It's really busy. But that's the harvest season for you. ;) Shown smaller than the original finished size of 1181 X 2362 pixels. See one original source here.

  • Tea Four Two

    I had some of Braque's still lifes in the back of my mind this week. Though, yeah... I recognize that there could only be one Braque. Shown original size: 1063 X 624 pixels. See one source here.

  • Angel Pie 3

    Shown smaller than the original completed size of 2977 X 2290. See one original source here. (I'm having some computer issues, but I'll update again as soon as I can. Thanks for your visits, likes, and comments.) :)


  • Mocha Bloom

    Some days you long for the corner cafe', but your bank balance won't cooperate. Shown at the original size of 768 X 1197 pixels. See one original source here.

  • Alien Lover

    This one is named after a track from Luscious Jackson's charmer Electric Honey. Shown smaller than the original completed size of 2551 X 1417 Pixels. See one original source here.

  • Rose Room 3

    You can probably tell that I'm a Magritte fan. But isn't everyone? Shown smaller than the original completed size of 2000 x 1636 pixels. See one original source here.


  • Happy Hour 6

    That's four layers of the "Crystal" filter mashed together: 3 in full color at different sizes. Then one of the combined layer de-saturated and added at low percentage over the top: to mute the colors somewhat. Shown smaller than the original finished si…

  • Buzzard's Bake Shop 3

    Was there ever a day in which you were stuck in the supermarket checkout line, with nothing to look at but those magazines? You know. The ones which demand that you bake rich desserts AND diet, simultaneously. If so, this piece is for you. :D (There's s…

  • Rose Room 2

    I should've captioned it "Say it with flowers," right? Shown smaller than the original finished size of 1500 X 3618 Pixels.. See one of the original sources here.


  • So Shiny

    I did some more playing with the Stamp tool. The butterfly was made from a snippet of the illustration here. The title is from this obscure (and not work-safe) but endearing Nineties pop ditty. Shown smaller than the original finished size of 2598 X 189…

  • Happy Hour 5 (Hot Date)

    Yeah, I know I've used this background color in this series before. But I managed a different texture, at least. :) (It's two layers of Difference Clouds, if you're curious.) Shown smaller than the original size of 1500 X 2000 pixels. See one of several…

  • Royal Roost 2

    I'm pleased with the background crosshatch effect here. It's a combination of the "Colored pencil" filter and squares of white knit wool, in closeup. Shown at its original size of 1016 X 1016 pixels. See one of the original sources here.


  • My Man 2

    The Sine Wave filter made the "ocean." Shown smaller than the original finished size of 1654 X 2008 pixels. See one of the original sources here.

  • Little Banana 3

    Those re-purposed washers are back again, along with the fruit. Shown smaller than the original finished size of 2954 X 1417 Pixels. See one source here.

  • Bye-Bye, Love

    Here I'm playing with "Command+Invert" and the "Paint Daubs" filter, mostly. I'm kind of stretching the definition of comics, but there is a balloon. :) See one original component here.
