Nectar – the Sweetness of Life

This afternoon my husband brought in a tiny bougainvillea flower and shook it over my hand. The resultant drop was nectar and it tasted SO sweet!  And it prompted me to create a digital painting with the them of Nectar – the Sweetness of Life, because sometimes there is so much bad news around it can weigh you down. So please remember – you are loved by your soul, your heart, your family, your friends and many other people because you are a unique person who, in turn, contributes to the sweetness of life of others.

I created this painting from a green canvas on PicMonkey, then added a photo I took a while back of two blue convolvus flowers with a bright yellow centre. Then I added layers from the “paint” gizmo on PicMonkey and finally finished up with another layer of the original photo of convolvus flowers. The yellow centre seemed to me to represent a mecca for nectar.

  1. Thanks, Rita. I’m starting again with PicMonkey tutorials, they changed the format, would you believe. I’m going to do step-by-step stuff, and work out also how to do screen shots, never have worked it out before.


    1. My husband’s hopeless at presents as such, Mary, but I’ll often walk into my study and find a vase of flowers which I just love. And it’s so good to see leaves and flowers on the bougainvilleas again, they took a real beating when that super-cold wind blew. Weird weather all over the place.
