Sue emailed image - her interpretation of my past r.egret - and, I mixed that with Lisa's leaf detailed tree fern.

Here is another great idea that was pulled out of a glass bottle. We all can go Dutch. I joined but unfortunately do not own a scanner. I am thinking of posting hypothetical representation of my lie.fe - a poor man's Zelig where I dated super models and own estates by the (shallow) sea.

I shallow therefore I am (

Blogger gulped down my previous comment? How rude is that! The gist being: buy a scanner, you were cute as a little boy drooling cream of wheat during an earthquake.
Now I want to add: earlier this afternoon I heard a robin and thought of you. It will be like that now, you know?

purple haze, that is the first thing I thought. Thanks for linking John.

Purple plumes are perhaps purposely more powerful than pale plumes.

Hi John, yesterday, I downloaded several of your images to alter. In other words, I stole them to manipulate. I hope that is okay with you, seeing as how we are now all collaborating. I have also stolen from Lisa and Sue and the Artful Eye.

I am a wicked person, I am. I admit it.

Here's how Jimi would smack it down:

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things don't seem the same
Acting funny but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple Haze all around
Don't know if I'm climbin up or down
Am I happy or in misery
Whatever it is that man put a spell on me

Help me Help me

Purple haze all in my eyes
Don't know if it's day or night
You got me blown Blown my mind
Is it tomorrow or the end of time

Cool beans, I mean ferns!

Awesome piece, John. Love the purple textured landscape. This I'd like to see quite large, the size of a wall!

Lisa Sarsfield said...

John you have shattered my illusion! You mean you don't date supermodels and live by the sea?
This piece is quite busy, the fern dictates that I guess. I like the purple because it has a calming effect which is the effect that the real tree had on me. Peacefull and idylic. An interesting fluke? or intentional?

Marie is a super role model so I guess I am doing OK....
