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.

After being caught earlier this morning running naked up and down the halls of my nursing home…..they locked me in my room, doubled my medication and told me to design some t-shirts for next week’s Medicare Bazaar.
