This composition is a Digital Alteration (re layers and textures). I am

very fond of Columbine but I do not have this variety. Am hoping to

have it for next Spring. I have a double blossom variety but I think

the rabbits may have ate it as I have not seen it bloom for over 2

years. There have been so many beautiful posts of Columbine by

PN Members this Spring. They are truly one of the most delicate and

exquisite of all flowers in my mind. (hope you enjoy this one, many

thanks in advance for any visits, Gail :)

Thanks so much Jack. I have not been online for a bit - preparing for a Family Baby Shower and trying to get the flower gardens planted. I hope to catch up on probably a good number of shots you have probably posted!!

This beautiful.  I've looked at it several times and each time I see an Oil Painting.  Your post-processising is excellent.

Thanks so much Bill, so glad you like it. I know not everyone likes Digital Alterations. I enjoy working on them so much. I sure hope 'Tropical Bill' does not come too near you'. Stay safe always, Gail

Beautiful exposure and colors and awesome processing. You seem to have to ability to take a pretty simple image and transform it into a work of art.

Gail this is another outstanding effort from you. I like the watercolor/painting type background and the subject jumps out. So nice.

I love Concubine myself, they always remind of something from a fairy tale kind of garden. I do have them in my garden, but they are slowly being dominated by another plant.  Unfortunately I am not a real keen gardener so don't pay it the attention it deserves. 

Love the very fine, gossamer like textures you have applied here. 


Best Regards

I had originally done a different version of this image for my Mother's Day Card (for my Mom). I thought I would try something a bit different and I know it will be used for a card again!!

I  have always loved drawing and painting since a child - when I can incorporate it into one of my images - I do enjoy the work. Many thanks for that encouragement.

Hi Holger, always so good to hear from you. I do enjoy this kind of work. I always have enjoyed painting - so good to hear you are fond of this one.

The palette knife kind of look of the background is very realistic and the combination of the soft colours foreground and background is adorably a great match. I am glad that you did not give the same treatment to your foreground flower. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful.


All the best, my friend.
