About This Image

This composite card is a result of two photos and original artwork.

The flowers were taken at the reconstructed Mormon town of Nauvoo, Iowa last summer and the mat is actually from my living room walls. The chicks and eggs are original art I created in Corel Painter IX.5, using my Wacom Intuos 3 Graphics Tablet. It's the best program I've found for true sketching and I still have a long way to go to master it.

I hope you all enjoy my gift to you. Have a wonderful Easter. Vicki

It's good to see you and your work again, Doug. I still haven't been able to get to the other site - but haven't tried lately as my online time is somewhat limited. I'm glad you liked this one - your comments mean a great deal. Thanks for looking - Vicki

Hi Vicky, thank you of your lovely Card of season greetings. It is a nice gesture. Ciao Ikka

You are both most welcome, Anne and Mary. Anne - I was after an old-timey look as this card started to develop. At the beginning I was playing around with the idea of a totally original art card. The eggs came first and the chick sort of evolved while I was experimenting with different mediums in Painter. When I saw the color palatte I was leaning towards I remembered the photo from a trip to Nauvoo last year which complemented my art. Still not content, I went to my 'texture' file where I keep an assortment of images for backgrounds and opted for the wall of my RV. A little text, and I knew where it was headed - to The Lens Flare. Mary, I sent a note to Alandra regarding Painter last night - turns out she had been at the Corel site not 20 minutes before I emailed her - and unconsciously answered questions she had about the program without realizing it. It's a small world. Happy, happy Easter to both of you. Vicki

I can only echo the remarks of the others. The chicks and eggs are just the exactly right touch and remind me of some of the cards I use to receive when I was young. Just really great card - and thank you, Vicki

I'm glad you enjoyed your card, Sparkle,Cindy, Tania and Beverly. It was fun creating the elements and seeing how they went together. I have the original as my wallpaper and it looks bright and cheery. You are all welcome to have a copy of it if you wish. Vicki

Thank you for your encouraging comments, Alan, Lorraine, Alandra, and Don. I had a lot of fun creating this and am tickled over the heartwarming response. I'll send you an email Alandra - got some info about Painter for you. I know you use Photoshop and Painter and Corel work well together. Last fall, while between flights in Atlanta I met a lady who designs art for computer embroidery and mentioned I was looking for a good painting program for my Wacom tablet - she immediately opened her laptop, dug out HER Wacom tablet and demonstrated Painter IX. I was hooked. If you like to draw - or even doodle - it's incredible. I created my signature for this year with it too. Vicki

A beautiful piece of work Vicki! It's perfect. And thank you very much. Happy Easter to you too! You didn't need to do all that work. I'd have been just as happy with a big chocolate bunny :-). Don
