"Amazing Challenge" Finalist

© FD - Glazed Spring Sky

  "Amazing Challenge Entertainment" just concluded it's Challenge for Textured Images of A Tree.  My image Glazed Spring Sky, was voted as a finalist in this Challenge.

  With the historic amounts of snow that we have received in the past 6 weeks, I look longingly to this image and hope that nature continues with it's plans, and that the trees around us will continue with their plans to blossom.  Oh, I can't wait!

Designs in Monochrome

This is the world today in monochromes. My image, In The Heat of The Sun, is in the top row, second from the right corner. It is an interesting compilation of colors and subjects, all with the same underlying theme.

  This memorable image of mine, Afire, was included this morning as a feature in One Single Flower on Display.

  What a wonderful way to start off a new month, that I hope brings us more moderate temperatures and no more snow.

A Twist on Spring Colors

  A Challenge that I recently entered, supported by the Color Splash group, that featured selective coloring  "As I am longing for spring for this challenge enter your best image of selectively colored flower(s)", has just concluded.

  My image, Digital Orange, was voted as a finalist in this Challenge.  I think that the whole collection of finalists is quite striking with the black backgrounds, and inviting colored blossoms.  This is probably on of my favorite entries of all time because of the effect of colored flowers.  Digital Orange can be seen in the top row, left corner [second most vote of 3].

And In Contrast....

© FD - End of Time

A really lovely group Globes, Spheres, and Curves,  selected my image, End of Time, as a Feature today.  This is especially rewarding since this image has ultimately become one of my most popular ones, and I was actually giving it a "rest" for a while to let some of my other images come into play.  I appreciate the selection very much.

Spring Sky Winner

 My image,  Glazed Spring Sky, was chosen as  the shared win in the March Avatar Challenge. in the Visual Texture Group.

After all the snows of the past 5 weeks here, I was really hoping that my image from last year would have an impact in the challenge.  I am so happy it did, finally.

I can't wait to see these skies appear again soon.  Great way to close out the month too.

"Mostly White"

The "# Favorites - Mostly White Challenge" just concluded, and I am happy to say that my image, Snow Bench  was selected as a Top Ten Finalist.  With the overwhelming amount of snow we have had here in this part of the North East, it was nice to see my representation recognized.

Snow Bench is located in the bottom row, left corner.

A Fun Feature

   I decided to enter a challenge a couple of weeks ago for an Only Computer Drawings event.  I got the news last night that my computer drawing of my Marabou Princess was voted as a Top Ten Finalist in the Challenge.

   A fun way to start off the new month.
