I've been mucking around with some of my pics recently and came up with the following results. Whilst I realize these are photos, they have been manipulated beyond what I would deem a photograph, therefore I hope the true artists on this thread do not mind me posting them here rather than on the photography pages? (Please let me know if you would prefer me to move them there).

I hope you like the effect?

Well after many many attempts I have at last got this pic posted (forgot how). I have not done many wildlife paintings in the past year so it was wonderfull to paint this lion. I have also not been on the forum much over the past year or so - must say some lovely art works have been posted. Oumie, Barcud, jenismithies, Moose and Nico to name a few - great art works!!! :clap: :clap:

Painter, I love this lion, I like the way you paint.
Art is what you feel, not what you are.

It's been a very long time since I was here posting, although I often read the posts.
Anyway, I'm still painting and surviving as an artist and blessed to spend a lot of time in Kruger.
Anyone know exactly where this is?

I just love painting wilddogs. They have so much character and energy. Latest painting a portrait of two wilddogs. Oil on canvas.

Thanks for all the kind words - truly encourages one. Another new painting - I seldom do elephants but I enjoyed doing this one.
