Waterlilies at Cranbrook, Variations on a theme

I was fascinated by the reflections helf in the ponds of the leaves, and their autumnal coloring.

Turning into Dirt

Leaves on the dirt road around the lake at Cranbrook. They almost look like fossils as they are ground into the dirt and begin to disintegrate.

Turkey Day Silliness

This is a little celebration for Thanksgiving of the hand turkeys we all used to make as children. We made them happy, often with pretty surroundings and dishes of food. I made this freehand on my new tablet. I still have a lot to learn so bear with me.

Hope you have a happy thanksgiving!

The Tree

This is my second attempt to use my new Tablet (Toshiba Tecra Tablet). I don't consider this done yet. It is copied/traced in part from an earlier tree posted here. But not entirely, as after I got the basic shape I worked freehand. I drew every single line on here with the stylus pen by hand. This is not a photo. (You probably can tell). Posted by Picasa


I got a new Toshiba Tecra Tablet PC and this is my first attempt at using the tablet.

If I were doing it over I'd give her a little more room for brains. Posted by Picasa
