Here’s the original poem. That whole card is… pretty amazing stuff. Especially gun-toting Cupid who can’t figure out what his dominate hand is:

By amylsacks. "In the days of patch and powder--- Dreamful days of long ago-- If the damosels were prouder Than today we may not know;  "But it is no elf of fancy That low whispers to us now Love

Digital decollage. I made a layer of typefaces, using brush-setting erasers to “peel back” portions of them at the edges of the scraps. Then I put a “painting” over them and “peeled” that, too. Fun experiment:

Still Life 9

I’ve used erasers like this before on occasion, but never on an entire pic.

The mushrooms used to be the base of a dessert dish. Thought of making them the stars, but then I really got into the “figure painting” part. So fun, and it did better on that other site than I expected. I guess I could bring out the brushes more in the future.

Awww… thanks.

Are you working on anything right now? I like your pics a lot, too.

I’ve been back to making pictures for almost seven years now, after seven years of lying fallow. I feel like I’m just beginning to unlock all the things that Photoshop can do. :slight_smile:

Here’s the new one I just finished on Friday. (My eyes may never uncross again)

First of March is completed. :face_holding_back_tears:

Thank you!!! And yeah! My thought process was bascially, “What if…a coyote and a black bear go. Mushroom hunting. In the night. Yes.” XD

It sure is!!! The coyote is teaching the bear about mushroom foraging! That’s kinda what I had in mind. Funnily, the bear is like the coyote’s sidekick. I think they’re some kind of a mischievous duo!

People have literally come to blows over expensive/desirable shrooms in the wild so yeah… Maybe this IS the kind of help you need in your corner to make it big in Mycology. :wink:
