  1. Thank you @BoltBait, @Ego Eram Reputo & @welshblue! Yes, Welshblue there was lots of plants. I bought over 100 succulent, cactus & aloe cuttings & then some pots & other plants too. My son surprised me on Friday night with a suprise visit - he lives over 700km away. We had the best weekend full of plants, coffee & eating out that anyone could wish for.
  2. Oh wow! What an amazing image. Not only did you do a box but 3 of them & the clear cap as well as the NGK in the background. Plus, working with a new program & working with another PDNer. This just makes me so happy. You have far exceeded my expectations with this! What awesome work!
  3. Such a beautiful bracelet. You've captured pearls so well!
  4. Oh the boot from one of these is quite memorable. In Australia we call adjustable wrench a shifter among other things unmentionable on a family friendly forum. Yep, rounds off nicely. The rounding is not so noticeable. Great brand too. It is another fantastic image from you. The hint of Cross-processing is just perfect. A very polished piece. I challenge you to make the box it comes in 😀 After the fantastic job you did with the cigarettes, you would nail it. Easy.
  5. There's awesome talent in the big house @welshblue @Rickhumthis is crazy in a good way. I see a giant tarantula lurking there on the right hand side back. Poor ducks. Such a paradox alright. So much to see! Well done. Growing up is optional 😂
  6. What fabulous entries. Congratulations to the winners.
  7. Beautiful image. The colours and textures are just perfect for each other.
  8. Oooh nice this one! https://postimg.cc/Wq34KCmy I do love how you brightened it up & the colours are so much more vibrant. This is a bit like a collab too @Woodsy. Thanks so much for sharing.
  9. @Seerose, @welshblue, @Pixey, @TrevorOutlaw, & @Woodsythanks so much. I will send you the image WB Woodsy , love for you to post up what you got. I'm always interested in different outcome for images
  10. Now that I have a little more time I have created quite a few more wallpapers using my plants. Black Rain - sister to Gothic Rain Raindrops in Winter Night Rain Titanium Rain Winter Night's Dream
  11. Well, I see succulents where there are none It does look like a waterlily! And the image is very dark, maybe even more so on your screen? @welshblue- yep, same here. The dark & moody & always been one of my loves & I know it is yours too. Funny think is I do like my environment to be bright. I chose the brightest room in the house for my office & have my kitchen aside from being no bigger than a hanky, it's dark Oh the hours of fun we could have if we lived closer. I wanted to put a glass pane on one of the photos of my succulents but I sucked at it It didn't work but on the grye background it looked ok. I was so annoyed at myself that I binned the glass but in hindsight I should have put it up in the tute. I will have to try again - or maybe send you the succy photo & you can do the glass pane on it? A collab? We haven't done one of those in forever.
  12. Thank you @Pixey& @Woodsy Woodsy, the raindrops were a part of the original photo. People living in South Australia have been experiencing some severe weather but my friend's place was spared the worst of it. They did get some rain which is not great for succulents in large amounts I will update them there now too since I know they are working now. Thank you for letting me know. And, yes, it sure is Pixey!
  13. Sorry folks. It's been so long I have forgotten the settings for the links. Please let me know if they are working now. Thank you for the kind words too.
  14. Oh boy, it has been so long since I posted any images that I have almost forgotten how! Thank you all for the most encouraging comments. I am in the process of building up a small home nursery to supplement my income - long story... One of my fellow succulent addict has kindly allowed me to use his photos to create artworks. As soon as I saw his aeonium with the rain spots on it, I knew I had to create a wallpaper. I've called it Gothic Rain. I like dark & moody images & I am drawn to them in other artists too. So that you can see how it has been altered, I have added the original photo as well, as per frequent requests in the past.
  15. Well, I think it is a fabulous image & there is nothing I can fault. Bravo! Well done
  16. Happy birthday @Red ochre. May all your wishes come true on your special day.
  17. Looks like the dingoes might be thinking of wallaby stew? Yes, it has such a sense of surreal & foreboding. The Impressionist style as WB mentioned is very pleasing to the eye. Both images are great & have a lot to look at. Well done!
  18. Why are your Galleria entries disappearing? Aw, that is so sweet - sending the the Dragon's Eye if it were real. If you're Mental Mister then I'm not far behind Looking forward to seeing what you come up with & hope to get some PDN time in soon to try out the glass tute.
  19. Oh boy! I have missed a lot of wonderful images here. Dragon's Eye - just WOW! I want to steal it & wear it. The Revive Collection is just superb. It would have to be one of the best images ever created. Fabulous colours too. Very professional & smooth. Bravo! Yes, please to a tute. Either one is fine I look at those glass panes & can't help but feel they need some standoffs to secure them. Shiny ones like only the metal master can produce.
  20. That first one is fabulous! Second one is getting moody again Lovely! Now we have both done a Visage image. All I hear now is Fade to Grey!
  21. The second one is a real stunner! Well done on all of them!
  22. Oooh, all the descriptions are very fitting! ⭐ Very nice!
  23. Yes, echoing the thoughts of Welshy, Pixey & Lynxster. I cried when my father died because there are no more opportunities for to answer for his behaviours. I cried because I didn't get to have the father I & my siblings deserved (my brothers got a slightly better deal but I don't hold that against them). I often see on FB how much people miss their dads. I wish I could miss mine. In saying that I cried, I cried for me, not him. I remember I did some artworks around that time. It helped me to come to grips with the fact that it will now always be what it was. I spoke to a work colleague who experienced a similar thing. We agreed that you can grieve for something you never had. I hope that helps you. How is your hubby doing?
