Playing with Paint Shop Pro….

I have been spending a lot of time lately tinkering with graphic projects over the past few weeks. I have been an ardent user of Paint Shop Pro for a number of years while many others choose Adobe Photoshop as their graphics program of choice. Lately I have been creating “picture frames” which are actually “graphic” picture frames that can be used to frame your digital photographs and other images of choice.

For example, below is a sample frame I created….

Now, here is a painting of an owl framed with my created frame….

Then when you get really, really bored, you can always take a graphic and do something silly with one of your frame designs….

That’s it from here! I’m back off to the drawing ‘board’…..no pun intended! 😀

A selection from my “Top Ten Life List”….

Although I have spent a large majority of my life involved with music I never seem to have a post relating to music. So today I am posting one of the songs in my “Top Ten Life List” as I refer to it. This list contains my personal musical favorites after a lifetime of listening to music. As old as this selection may be, with its beautiful interlaced harmonies I consider it to be one of the most melodic songs ever written and recorded. And this version by the Fireside Singers goes a long way in giving this musical selection it’s just dues.
