Pink dogwood blossom – in my neighborhood last spring

I’ve always wanted to be an artist of some kind but never discovered my talent. I do take a few photos – so I hired a professional artist to paint some of my favorite photos. This set is all about flowers, some taken up close with a macro lens. If you think you recognize the painter ‘s style from these paintings, please don’t give him away; he doesn’t need the publicity. I might decide to update this page from time to time, so please check back.

  1. BTW, Peggy, The actual photo of the petunia which is several years is one of my favorites. I’ve posted it several times on different sites and it’s received a lot of good comments. The same is true with some of the others, so they didn’t really to be dressed up, but I love the oil-painting effect. Thanks again.


  2. Thank you, Peggy – the comment about the artist was meant as a joke, which I should not have supposed everyone would recognize as such. Being an avid photographer, I just assumed that everybody would recognize that these photos had been processed through a software filter which gives them that special artistic (read painted) look which makes the already-attractive photos even most attractive. I hope you don’t feel bad or think I meant to pass these off as real art, even though it gives them a special look.


    1. I don’t feel bad – really did think you found a fantastic artist. Ha You learn something new every day – no matter how old you are. That looks like a great software filter.


  3. Absolutely beautiful artwork. Whoever the artist is – they have magnificent talent. Thank you so much for sharing these. I am an amateur painter, but I do not have the talent this artist has. Wow!!!!
