this reminds me of digital knitting with frayed edges....

It reminds me of many zippers and keeping my mouth closed and never saying another word.

But maybe I will unzip them all and talk anyway.

John, you are always so generous in your comments on other people's blogs, so I just want to say that as an artist you far surpass me in technique and skill and inspiration, so don't ever doubt your own ability. You are way up there with the rest. Isn't it nice how we all discovered one another?

I love the mon.key typ.ing! I might have to steal it now and again.

Thanks for the kind things you said on my blog. I hope you do return.

Irene, men learned long ago not to compare themselves, particualrly after gym class.

I will take your last comment as a compliment, but none of that ever again....your art is very precious and your words and honesty more than a delight. Kind honesty is priceless, particularly to a paranoid like me.

Sorry, I smell and must shower. Ladies, please leave.

I am going to link to some ale, football, soccer and NASCAR blogs to get some drunk men in here....

John - I'm speechless. These apple reincarnations are wonderful. I've learned something today about the Artic Tern, a beautiful creature.
Thank you.

I love this piece! So wonderful in its textures and light. Nice work, John.

That is a lot of flapping, John. The artwork is keeping up though and is very suitable for the Arctic Tern. I love the way you have given the work a blurred look by making the repeats smaller. Clever you!

Bobbie, this is the fastest image I have ever done - I did a refresh (F5) of my web page and moved down the page as the refresh was happening which blurred an image and then I did an alt print screen - the entire snapshot is in entry directly below.

I think I played with the colors a ybit afterwards after the crop.

Thanks, everyone for your very kind comments. They inspire me.
