This image was inspired by the poem by Gelett Burgess -- The Purple Cow:
The Purple Cow
The Purple Cow's Projected Feast: Reflections on a Mythic Beast, Who's Quite Remarkable, at Least.
I NEVER saw a Purple Cow; I never hope to See One; But I can Tell you, Anyhow, I'd rather See than Be One. -- Gelett Burgess
The image itself was created in Bryce 6.1, with minimal post-processing only to clarify and sharpen, and for the digital signature.
I chose to make my little beauty a bit faceted to resemble a cut amethyst or a piece of collectable Swarovzki crystal. She is posing in front of three emerald cacti, on a highly reflective 'desert floor', just taking in the sunset.
PLEASE NOTE: Not all monitors see colors the same way. The actual image may vary slightly from what you see on your screen.

I learned most of what I know at my mother's knee. I grew up learning to paint from my mom, as well as other creative eneavours. As I was growing up, everyone KNEW that to give me a blank anything was like giving me a blank canvas.
As I grew older, I found myself gravitating more and more to the camera and less to the painting side of things. I still paint, but the photography has taken over. LOL!
With the addition of computer skills, digital art has become a passion as well.
I guess my style could be best described as diverse and eclectic.
