Exquisite flower! Let us walk calmly through the whole composition with pleasure! I remember the texture of the paper I use to draw! A flower drawn with paper ... worked with your hands and not with the eyes!
A mysterious and pleasant effect Dulcie! Best regards! Adela

Hey Dulcie - I was just reading your words to Jerry (ordinaryimages). You mentioned his inspiration and I agree - wholeheartedly. And I open your magnolia here and it struck me how much it looks like an image Jerry would produce. A stellar tribute - to both of you.

I enjoy a lot the textures of this white beauty, a rich fabric it seems, and very nostalgic & romantic at the same time

Hi Dulcie!
Once you asked me for a feedback about pictures prints on plexiglass...So, as I have mines for the exhibition now, I can tell you more about...
First remark, with numeric photos, post treated, as you and me are enjoying to do, one can forgot the usual kodak or Agfa paper....Argentic papers are for argentic photographies...(I've first spent too much money, trying to find the good laboratory to get my images on paper, this has end up in a disaster!)
With post treated photos, just think PRINTS!!! And I must say that plexiglass prints are just impressives!
Very elegant and very class! You should try with one you like very much...
I am satisfied, I was a little afraid but I am now reassured and I am delighted to make this exhibition...
Hoping to get once enough money to buy an high quality printer in order to manage the complete graphic chain...

Wish you a nice summer!
