IA Spring

Spring...the hopeful season...sunshine, blue sky, fresh breezes, kites,
children playing, lilacs, ducklings, butterflies, tulips, daffodils, bees,
lambs, green grass, dandelions...
This image was a bit of a new adventure for me as I did more 'painting'
with brushes in PSE 8. Starting with the line drawing I painted by adding 
bits and pieces of photos and then filling in by brushing on layers of color
in the remaining areas.  I am especially pleased with the way the little
girls dress turned out using a cut from a chintz image.  :)


  1. Oh my gosh, the little duckies in the corner are too cute!

  2. This is beautiful, Bitzi! You did a great job. Makes me want to get on a swing and stay there all day.

  3. Isn't great to stretch? And love the little duckies!

  4. Aw it's so lovely! Great mixture of media - your little girl really works well against the background and I love the little ducks!

  5. Wow, this is quite impressive. It also has a beautiful spring feeling, kind of carefree - lovely.

  6. Bitzidoodles,
    Oh this is cute. Takes me back to an easier time, When seeing how high I could fly was the best part of my day.

  7. It looks right out of the pages of a book of rhymes...remember that on "up in a swing..."
