I've been having computer problems lately and decided to try a new internet browser. Hopefully that will take care of the "freezing up" of the computer; it was happening way too often and seemed to be an Internet Explorer issue. So now I'm trying Firefox. So far, so good. It's a little different and I'm still trying to figure out how things work but so far no freezing up!

I have been experimenting with Photoshop options again. This piece started out as a vintage room with a gauzy overlay. After adding many, many layers of color, texture, etc. I had the look of the room I wanted but I couldn't find a subject! Then I ran across this little one in my vintage photos file. She just looks like a little flower. Voila! I had my subject. She was a black/white image so I had to give her some color to make her blend into the room better. By the way, she's holding one of the irises from my flower garden! They've all started to bloom and that gave me the idea for the title...Little Miss is in full bloom!

I am also learning how to make my own digital brushes AND how to make a video (thanks to my sister Sherry who visited last weekend). These are both in the works and hopefully I'll have something to show soon.

Also still working on art behind the scenes and keeping very busy with all of that. I've had to take a short break from everything not computer related and am in the midst of reorganizing the art room. It's so out of control I can't find anything. I am slowly making progress and running across things I'd "lost" ages ago! Maybe someday I'll get organized and stay that way. But, considering my history, it's doubtful. ;)

I love the picture - but the image itself is a little creepy for some reason.
