Thanks TH & NMD21.

The texture is partly Chad's concrete tute (search will find it for you I am sure) & overlaid with some gold stuff. Honestly, I don't remember how the gold came about exactly but I can reuse it because I keep a file of the textures I like.

The ideas come from everywhere. I look at a lot of others' galleries & then try these out with my own slant, often combining ideas. Sometimes I do tutes & I get so side tracked that I end up abandoning the tute & following a new line of thought.

Thanks for stopping by & leaving a comment.

Thanks everyone for the positive comments. Chad's concrete tute is so versatile as we find out all the time. I miss him here.

MountNMan - maybe I should have kept that one for the rusty WOTW?

In any case I have been really busy with work & other things but should get back here a bit more often.

Dark Fleur kinda caught me off guard a bit too but I am pleased with the outcome.

Working on some new things...

We all know that computers are sometimes too intuitive for their own good. Work decided to give me a corporate email address but my previous private address cannot be deleted from their system & of course everyone just goes with the auto-suggest. I then have to email their email to myself. I've sent out about 100 reminders on which address to use. The IT guru suggested that he give them all a slapping & clean their glasses so they can use the right one. I love the guy but sadly he got a better offer & now I have to mould a new IT guy. :lol:

I am so pleased you could see the look I wanted for the cat. Just how I felt.

Bird of paradise flowers/plants come in so many different sizes & colours. I have some planted that get to be about 20 ft tall with more blues than oranges.

Thanks so much Welshy for the great comments. Big hug to you! :D

hi bbq,

just went through all your artworks again, which i really like (even though I don't say much in the topics and all, I do love to watch all the artworks on the forum) the one I like the best is Hope, from your older works, it actually gives me a hope-feeling when I look at it. You use such nice colors always, your artwork always gives a light. you're a great artist :)

Aislin, I am pleased that Hope makes you feel that way. That is what I was trying so hard to achieve.

With most of my pieces there is an emotion that I was trying to convey. Many people see things that I don't & each person brings their own emotion to an artwork.

Your comments mean a great deal to me because you are a great artist too & what you see is what I try to achieve. You have let me know that I hit the mark. Thanks Aislin & a big hug to you.

Gothic Dreams is lovely. I like how the jewel is horizontally-placed like that. The background. Oh my gosh. It's a beauty. I like the soft, glowy parts to it. The Christmas image is so cute! I like the simple style to it and the tree being red is a little different than the traditional green color. Summer Fish is awesome. The outlined parts of it is just amazing--your style somewhat reminds me of stained-glass work.

Thanks for the kind words Welshy. Here are a couple more versions. Not sure which one I like best.

th_ADGothicBlue2.png version 2

th_ADGothicBluev3.png version 3

th_ADGothicBluev4.png version 4

Something that I did different was to put a 1 pixel line of black around the yellow part of the Summer Fish image just to stop it from like "floating away". Not sure if I should have blurred it a bit more or if it indeed works. Looks ok to me but others may have a different idea.

Helen's portfolio reminded me of the wonderful strong colours & shine that can be achieved. So thanks Helen :D I have always loved the slightly stained glass look with the gold fretwork.

The gold part on the AD Gothic Blue is from a file that Welshy sent me years ago (yep, it really has been that long!)

Thanks Helen & Welshy!
