A larger image - here reduced - based on Andrea's backyard Eucalyptus tree and snippet of my Everglades. So, here is a combination of almost the Gulf of Mexico and almost the Gulf of California. A continental devide morphed.
Worked on using Paint.net and larger photo files so can be blown up larger. Earlier drafts and more (red.undant) information below.
Above are small versions of larger files made while working with MS Paint, Paint.net and MS Office Picture Manager. I really like Picture Manager and this is the best I have worked with Paint.net (which is going to be a program that replaces MS Paint if I want to work with larger files). Paint still does some things (overlay in particular) I have not found elsewhere....
The exploratory drafts below were done with MS Paint and MS Office Picture Manager. I do not have a large file for these images. So, maybe I am just playing in the mud and praying for more sun and warmth.
I like where I am going these days. Fewer comments, but I like the group I found and do not plan to enlarge my circle by venturing to other blogs. My best.
