“Resurgam” is Latin for “I shall rise again” - an good inscription for a gravestone, especially in the spring. It seemed appropriate to combine the symbols for death, remembrance, and resurrection.

Just playing with flowers and depth of field in Vue.

This design is in the Art Deco style popular in the early 1900s. I came across a lot of stained-glass designs in my researches, so I decided to try one with the popular sun motif. I had fun picking textures from various Apophysis and Xaos renders, some of which have been sitting on my computer for months or even years. There are bits of Eyes of the Storms, Waltz of the Snowflakes, and Chaos Tie-Dyed in there, as well as others that have never seen the light of day.

“‘Down there,’ said Golg, ‘I could show you real gold, real silver, real diamonds.’
“‘Bosh!’ said Jill rudely. ‘As if we didn't know that we're below the deepest mines even here.’
“‘Yes,’ said Golg. ‘I have heard of those little scratches in the crust that you Topdwellers call mines. But that's where you get dead gold, dead silver, dead gems. Down in Bism we have them alive and growing. There I'll pick you bunches of rubies that you can eat and squeeze you a cup full of diamond-juice. You won't care much about fingering the cold, dead treasures of your shallow mines after you have tasted the live ones of Bism.’”

One of my earlist landscapes made in Vue. I originally made this picture for Mother's Day. It's the kind of solitary, quiet place I would love to relax. This has sometimes been mistaken for a fall picture in spite of the flowers and green grass, but it's supposed to be a Japanese maple, which has red or burgundy leaves in the spring.

These azaleas were looking nice and fresh after a spring rainstorm. I thought the raindrops gave a nice sparkle, and a little selective coloring helped to bring out the glowing center.

Here in the southeast there are azaleas blooming everywhere in April. I photographed these after a rainstorm, and I thought a little selective coloring would be appropriate.
