A Few More...



A New Distraction

I recently upgraded my PSP program and as part of the upgrade I received Corel Painter Photo Essentials 4.  I am having way too much fun playing with this program.  Prior to entering med school, I worked in an Art store, and I began to dabble in watercolor paintings.  While I acheived a level of comfort working with the medium, I could never really advance beyond the beginner level.  This program allows me to "paint" what I am capturing in my photos in a way I never will be able to in real life....

And this one:

It has the ability to do paintings, drawings, pastels, etc... if you have it, I would love to see what you can create... I just got it yesterday, but I myself can't wait to see how much I will be able to increase my creative abilities!
