Woodless Frames, Paintless Art

It's been a week of doctor's appointments and things that are keeping me busy off and on with not much time to be on the computer. Again!! During the lull between traveling from one appointment to the next, I have been dubbing now and then with the computer art programs. I have two that I use a lot. Paint Shop Pro and onOne Effects. The latter one mentioned, I upgraded and received some new effects that I wanted to test....

....so I chose a photo and liked the results/also adding frames, then, I tried another...and another, and another and one more.


Tri-Colored Heron and White Tailed Hawk


Great Blue Heron



Loggerheaded Shrike and Snowy Egret

ORIGINAL PHOTOS:






I'm finished with doctors for now 'til next time comes around.  The results of my most recent blood work and updates from the primary care physician were ALL GOOD!!!  Now,  it's getting the house ready for holiday company coming in such a short time.  Christmas is soon here.  Not much baking or cooking...the guests will be in shock mode.  Anni just doesn't cook much these days.  lol

    1. Paint Shop Pro is from an old disk I installed when I got the new computer....the other one is found online. I think it was a 'trial' at first, not sure. Thanks Ann

  6. Like them very much. On my old computer I could frame pictures and such. On this newer one I don't know if I can or how. At first I thought that one bird was doing a split. Crazy me the right side was it's tail. I think we have earned the right not to cook if we don't want to.

    1. It's a good thing someone at the Deli provides our staples these days. LOL

      I reinstalled all my programs when I rec'd the new computer. And, happily, they even work properly with windows 10

      thanks Paula

  11. I love them all, but think the Great Blue Heron is my favorite. But they are all really fantastic....

    I don't cook much these days either. I sued to make a lot of fudge, and don't even average making one batch a year. I don't many cookies or pies either.
