The gaudiest I have gotten, no? Tranquility, interrupted. MS Paint excerpts form a Paint.net original alteration, rowdy cousins of the posts below.

I recently read in a comment how Andrea loves change - craves it. I am most comfortable with the familiar. My cell phone looks like it is ten years old - a Nokia oldie but goodie. No Razor in my pocket.

Need to install PS....I know I will learn to love it , as I do my BlackBerry and iPod. Have a warm day.

Op, Op, Op Art and away! Makes me wanna splash colors everywhere!

This is oriental and gaudy. Reminds me of the fabrics of the dresses in alternative hippy shops where I sometimes buy Indian clothes. The colours of the garments are quite gaudy but usually come out in the wash.

Far from gaudy, please.
This is exciting vibrant, alive.
You are on to something here.
When you mentioned layers, I had thought you were already in PS. I didn't realize these other programs utilized layers.

I do love change, except when it comes to my cell phone. Don't care much for cellphones. Petpeeve. Crackberries, too connected. Verizon had to beg me to return my phone because it was no longer supported.

I'd like to have a warm day but my office is about 50 degrees.

These new explorations are truly wonderful. Thanks for branching out.

Wow - hot hot hot - these are different - like those shimmering bright colours
much more modern somehow.

I like the sticky sections - they are reminding me of something, but I can't remember what. So familiar but in a different context. twiggy things.

Kim said...

wow John !!!fantastic !!!
absolutely psychedelic !!!
the colours are incredibly riotous...these make me feel like dancing :)

John said...

Thank you for your most kind optomistic commments.

Hammergirl points out that I am branching out and hidden in that lovely san diego zoo pun is the truth.

In familiarity is the preservation of the earth - not true, but a weak hearted nod at Thoreau and my basic instinct.

I find the interelation of my tools set exciting.

Thanks again. I so enjoy the exchanges across our blogs and hope blog.friends return.

Frances, thank you for your recent visits. I am new here, but we have been shooting arrows at the same wagon train.

Oh John, these are so wonderful, every time I think i am getting somewhere, you are leaps and bounds ahead of me! I applaud you loudly, sir. These are great! I must remember the colors and how they dance all over the place. Very neat!

Yes Kim said it with pyschedelic! But I love the pink spring blossoms with the firey autumn leaves. The hemisphere has been united.
