Digital Art is my winter hobby. At the moment I have an enduring passion for Fractal Art
****Meadow Sweet by GrannyOggSacre Verde by GrannyOggCy Generalised Durbi Practice 1 by GrannyOgg*****
In the summer I build things. I have just built a chicken run at the back of my garden. I lost two chickens to a big brindle backed male fox. during the winter. My son bought me another one for mother's day. She is a Mille Fleur Bantam and we have named her Vienna. Sun Dance hatched six eggs in late May so I am extending their sleeping and laying boxes.
*****Scruffy by GrannyOgg********************* Fluffy by GrannyOgg****
I have built a large wooden raised strawberry bed out of decking. Summer was late here in England. We had months of rain in the winter and now the ground is dust dry!

Today some one commented on my one and only DD. I went to look at it as I always do to reply to the comment and was surprised and heart warmed to see that it had been favourited 507 times. So I thought I's display it proudly on my profile.
Red-Flower-Sunset by GrannyOgg
and black and white Paint by GrannyOgg for colouring or vectorising.

Every fractal I make is always my current favourite, and this is my latest

KPK Mondrinsky by GrannyOgg

I have so many. In the 18 months of using Ultra Fractal 5 I have made 702 fractals and those are just the ones I have uploaded. For each and every one on DA there are probably six more variants waiting to be worked on.

Une Femme Dangereuse

Fri Apr 11, 2014, 3:45 AM

Anna by ScraNo by :iconscrano:

She comes at you – ruby lips protruding

And you, with the best intentions, gently resist.

 

Her dull, flat eyes flash malevolence briefly

And you, with the best intentions, resist

 

Clothed in raw need she clumsily seduces

And you with intention resist

 

Empty handed she claws at your chest

And you with intention firmly resist

 

Blood flows freely from the wounds of rejection

And you dispassionately resist.

 

Hot despair lights a fire that consumes her

But you, still intentionally, resist….

 

Standing now in pools of isolation

She turns away and gently desists.


 I wrote this a while ago. When I saw Claudia's image I just had to publish :)
