Random Moments of Delight #13: Daisy Palms

My week ended on a happy note when I created a new art-piece called Daisy Palms.

It’s been awhile since I’ve created a piece of abstract digital art that I’ve been satisfied with. This week I produced three!

I plugged along earlier this week writing and publishing my posts and planning the month ahead. But I was out of sorts, tired and unmotivated.  Then as I started preparing the photos for my Look Up, Look Down post (here) I was inspired by this lemon tree shot.

So, I delved into Photoshop and started creating a little FireBonnet magic and this is what I came up with.

And believe it or not, this next one also started with the lemon tree.

Don’t worry about trying to find any lemons, I can’t. 😉 But I absolutely love the colors and movement of the piece.

I was ready to end there for the week when I woke up Saturday morning really feeling down. Then I looked at the note I have on my computer monitor (not the part about how to do a copyright symbol with keystrokes),

Do Art

took some deep soothing breaths and went to work with one of my photos of palm trees and a daisy or two.

I get lost in the layers and colors… it feeds my soul. There you have it, I played hookey from blogging to create some visual delights and I hope they cheer you up as much as they do me.

As always I welcome your comments on this or any other part of my blog. I’d love to hear your random moments of delight. This challenge (or rather non-challenge) is about sharing special moments  with each other each week (read here for more info). Please put a link back here, in your post, so others may take part if they wish.

    Hey, what’s this ‘old’ stuff. You have a very youthful and vibrant soul Miss Gemma. On the other hand, abstract art is perfect for those of us who are sight challenged!

    These had to cheer you up! They are incredible. I really like the last one – the look of the palms peeking through. Very pleasing to the eyes. Especially these old peepers. 😀

    Aw, thanks Justine! The keyboard copyright only works with a number keypad… at least that one, so it won’t work on my tablet. The ‘down’ was just telling me to do something else, like some creating. I’m going to try and finish up my blogs for this week today so the rest of the week I can make some jewelry and maybe more abstracts.

    Hey, I love the pink lemonade pic those colours are wow and ones I would wear and get in trouble for wearing I think it is a red head thing the absolute of lots of brightly mixed colours?
    No 3 is great too, well done, its nice to do something different with ‘our’ art.

    I have never worked out the copyright symbol through using the keyboard keys, bleh

    Thank you Paricia! You’ll have to check out my online gallery for some other abstracts. But I agree, I need to keep creating!

    Thanks Mary! It was really fun when I learned about textures and what you can do with them. I am still a rank beginner with PS considering how much can be done with it.

    I’ve uploaded them to my online art gallery and are for sale on a print on demand basis. You can get the designs on greeting cards up to huge canvas or even metal wall hangings. It’s pretty cool. I try to make my abstract art so it would look good in a large scale.

    I don’t know a lot about digital art, but WOW! I love the colors and shapes and even the titles of the pieces. Do you print them out? Or do they just live in the computer?
