Birds Of A Feather


This is my entry for the Three Muses challenge this week "Nature's Creatures". I created the digital background out of several layers of blended artist papers (Mara Johnson- Creative imaginations) and imagery from Holliewood at deviantartscraps. Soft light filters and digital painting in Photoshop. Too fun!

  35. Your work is beautiful Lori, very inspirational. Thank you for the lovely comments you left about one of my images Lori. Your work is stunning, it so cheers me during miserable very grey weather, January, in the UK. You have made me more enthusiastic about trying out some more digital
    image work. Thanks so much for you comment Lori. Best Wishes Carol

  36. I feel so guilty, Lori. I love coming to your blog, and I see your lovely contributions every day on my sidebar, but I simply haven't been visiting like I should. Your art is always so inspirational, and it is because of YOU and all the digital art you create, that I opened up my swaps this year to digital art. Some swappers think digital art is not real art. When they say that, I send them your way. You are a truly wonderful artist and I have missed being here so much. I'm off to see what you have been making, because I don't want to miss one single beauty you have created. Have a super weekend.

  38. Sorry to be so late with my comments this week. An out-of-order phone line for almost a week affected my broadband connection and I am still catching up.
    Lori, this piece is beyond extraordinary if that is possible. Inspired, beautifully designed, exquisite. Bravo.
