  10. Spring has sprung, the grass is riz, I wonder where the birdies iz. Sorry for sharing, but when I read the title, this saying popped into my head. No idea where it came from. Beautiful painting! Lovely soft spring colors. I tried to find some images of Mr. Ou on line, but failed. I will try again.
    I will definitely check out the photoshop tip. My painting photos have been disastrous lately.

  19. So nice to have you back with us R - beautiful, beautiful, as always! ..and just have to finish ".. the birds are on the wing, they say, but that's absurd, the wing is on the bird". End of poem!

  28. Hello,
    Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving the nice comment. The pun was ok to leave. I was actually just looking at Georgia O'Keeffe's paintings when I noticed you had commented and when I came here I saw this lovely painting of yours......much like one of O'Keeffe's. The petals of the flower look so soft, it's amazing.
    Hope to see you around. Enjoy your evening.
