This week I designed more stationery using my series of stargazer lilies photographs. They are customizable and available on your choice of paper type and color.

Close up photo of a pink and white speckled stargazer lily on a black background. One large blossom basks in the glowing sunlight while another bloom hides subdued in the shadows beyond like an echo or a reflection.

Delicate and glowing in the sunlight, this macro photo of a pink and white speckled stargazer lily is extravagantly beautiful. Details of this gorgeous flower are in sharp focus as the soft background lets this dramatic flower bask in the limelight of this elegant picture.

This week I have been creating some stationery out of my stargazer lily photographs.

The soft focus in the photo on this stationery of a vase of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies glowing brilliantly in the afternoon sun conveys a feeling of old-fashioned romance and memories full of love and joy.

Softly focused photograph of a vase of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies glowing gloriously radiant in the afternoon sun. These beautiful blooms stand out gorgeously against the dark background.

This stationery features a focused black and white photo of an arrangement of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies overlaid with a semi transparent writing area. One unopened bud stands tall above the rest which bloom radiantly in an ethereal glow of afternoon sunlight.

A bouquet of stargazer lilies glows in the afternoon sun, with translucent petals and leaves, while the background disappears into the shadows in this softly focused photograph.

A bit of lens flare and a soft focus lend an ethereal effect to this photo of a bouquet of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies shining radiantly in the afternoon sunlight. set on a dark pink background and overlaid with a semi-transparent writing area, this photo makes an elegant writing paper.

I have recently started posting t shirts for sale in my Redbubble gallery. It’s not as easy to do as it is in my zazzle gallery, since I had to find, download, and learn how to use a new to me photo/image editing program. Interestingly enough I found the program because of an article on zazzle’s blog about free alternatives to Photoshop. Based on several recommendations there I decided to try out paint.net. I had previously given some thought to trying out gimp, but was unsure of how to install it and get it to work on windows. So far I am enjoying paint.net, and with some patches available for download (the links are available in their forums), I have been able to do everything I have needed.
  I am still interested in getting my hands on one of those Correll paint pads I have heard so much about from other artists in artist magazine’s online art forums though. My one piece of digital art, Aeriel’s Gift, was really fun and exciting to do–but frustrating because doing any detail work was so painstakingly slow and difficult using a mouse. I would like to try doing more things like that in the future.

Here are the  t shirts I have for sale on redbubble so far. They are available on several different styles of  shirt as well as in multiple color choices.

9 X 12″ chalk on paper, 2009, by Dawna Morton. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
Done entirely from memory in the space of about an hour, without referencing a photo, this large magenta colored flower sits on a moody background of expressive leaf shapes. in colors of green and purple, with hints of magenta, the foliage fans out around this striking flower like a burst of living flames.

Oil pastel crayon on paper, 9X12″ circa 1992. As Cinderella approaches the stairway to the castle, a glimpse of the prince at the ball is seen through a lighted window. Neither of them knowing what the future hold in store, it is a poignant moment filled with suspense and mystery.

Watercolor on paper, 9×12″, 2008. Along the borders of Gnat Creek Oregon a tiny white wildflower blooms in front of a rock, basking in the summer sunlight. I love the warmth of the sunlight on the mottled looking rock contrasted with the cool purplish shadows and the impressionistic background of lush vegetation.

Stargazer Lily in Pastel by Dawna Morton

Stargazer Lily in Pastel by Dawna Morton

Oil pastel on paper, 9 X 12″, by Dawna Morton, 2009.
Done entirely from memory without referencing a photo, this oil pastel drawing of a pink and white speckled stargazer lily on a brown background was completed in about an hour. the diagonal flow of this dynamic flower creates a vibrant energy.
I have been trying over the course of the past couple years to rely less on working directly from photographs in my artwork. Working directly from a photo help with the details, but sometimes that stifles my creativity and takes some of the fun out of it. I have only worked with oil pastel a small handful of times, but I did really enjoy the process of drawing,  filling in color and then smudging it with my fingers. Working entirely from memory is a bit tricky as far as remembering finer details–such as the three small yellow triangle-shaped petal that should have been in the center of the flower surrounding the pistol and stamen of the lily. The process took me about an hour in all, and I enjoyed both the process and the results.

My husband got me a beautiful bouquet of flowers this year for valentines day: stargazer lilies and purple irises. I took some pictures of them and had fun with the editing features in picassa3. A combination of softening the background, sharpening the foreground, adding a little extra glow, and in some cases also making it a focused black and white, or even bumping up the color saturation a little created some extraordinary effects. I really like how these turned out.
