Redbud +

Post by minniev » Mon Mar 19, 2018 3:21 am

Redbud is the first thing that blooms every year. Around here it isn't very photogenic because we don't have lovely flowing rivers and brooks, it usually just hangs over the road or muddy banks. So I gussied it up in texture and a touch of digital watercolor.

Thank you Ernst! Flowers are fun subjects to work out my texture fixation with.

Made me cry. Redbud was one of Daphne's favorite things in the world. This is an especially lovely rendition, more than worthy of printing and framing.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
