Another challenge I have followed with interest but never entered till now is a wonderful pattern challenge at "Müllerin Art" where Michaela is asking us to make patterns with Spring Flowers.
This is how I started using a very old version of Windows Paint and the mouse to paint the picture.
The free Web photo-editor Tuxpi created the frame.
A bird visits a Spring tulip.
Lots of birds playing in the pink sky, making a patterned star.
The bird found more Spring Flowers but he still likes the tulip best. He loves to be "Out and About" in the Spring.
Two birds playing.
These bird ghosts emerged from the painting after many hours with photo-editing, swirling and kaleidoscoping.
The bird ghosts wanted to do some formation flying with their friends.
I hope you enjoyed the original paintings and the patterns from them.
Do have a look at these two challenges where you will find lots of wonderful paintings and patterns.
