I had a wave of creativity at one point many months ago (could be going on a year by now) and made different collages of images that were flowers or plants of all the same color. Not sure if I'm really fond of them anymore but I spent hours making these and I'm going to post them anyway!
Here's the orange collage.
And I know, these titles are SO original! Give me a break, it's late, I'm tired and I'm horrible with titles as it is!
In the ZIP file are copies of the image at the following sizes: 1024x768, 1280x1024 (cropped), and 2048x1536. But if your display resolution is 1600x1200 or smaller you can merely full-view the image and set it as your desktop background (selecting "Stretch," "Fit to Screen," etc., if applicable). Additionally, the ZIP file contains thumbnails of 30 photos from this photo-shoot.

Another birthday gift (for a different friend). Her favorite color is orange and she's been asking me to do "wallpaper" designs.
This was a difficult piece even though it was relatively quick--I think it took about four days. The paper, bristol board, somehow was distorted from its usual smooth wonderfulness and was buckling insanely when I put down the first couple washes. So I had to abandon the idea of doing the whole thing with watercolor paint and used colored pencils instead. It worked out pretty well in spite of the wrinkles that the earlier washes had created.
I'm putting this in the paintings category even though it's more of a drawing on a wash.
It's uploaded at a big size so that you can print it out as a bookmark or something if you like. (Also, Karen, you can use this big size for your computer wallpaper--if it fits.)
