Illustration Friday "Renewal"

This was done for the meme "Illustration Friday" and it gave me the chance to use some new
software called Alchemy. It's a drawing program, it's open source and free, and it is so much fun to use. Anyone interested in digital drawing should take a look at this program. Its compatible with Photoshop, Painter, and Illustrator in case you want to take your drawing farther.
It has a feature where the shapes are controlled by sound, so by playing a combination of Bach and Ry Cooder I came up with this drawing. Well, OK, not exactly. But it really does have a feature controlled by sound, and the music playing on your computer does influence the type of line you produce.
The topic for this was Renewal. It's been Zero degrees outside for days. All I have been able to think of are flowers coming up in Spring.

He's smiling because he's holding up tickets to Hawaii.

Its Spring!

I found these in a garden center, nestled in the Astilbe.
