Thank You for Bday Wishes by KmyGraphic    Affection by KmyGraphic  Friendship by KmyGraphic  

I am overwhelmed with the love I've gotten from my DA friends on my birthday.  Please pardon me if it takes a bit to thank you all for your kindness and generosity.  I apologize for my slowness.  We changed our internet service and were unplugged from the internet much of the day yesterday while they brought in the cables and stuff.  I'm not that fond of DA's mobile app so I just couldn't connect.  We have a  brand spanking new high internet speed connection and are getting rid of T.V. except for live streaming the internet.  We plan on getting a digital antenna too.  It's just disgusting what Americans have to pay for T.V. anymore.  Anyway, done with my mini rant.  

Thank you all so so much for the presents, the cake badges and your warm wishes.  I am going to try to thank each and every person.  It just might take me a little time.  In the meantime:

MuchLove by KmyGraphic  ForYou by KmyGraphic

I've had a wonderful day.  I woke up to breakfast made my my hubby and a bouquet of red roses and freesia.  He knew I had wanted to spend my birthday with my little granddaughter but that didn't happen so he put a big happy birthday banner across the dining room and has been pampering me all day.   He took me out shopping, and a movie and a yummy sushi lunch.  He didn't want me to cook at all today to he went for a pizza tonight.  Instead of cake he got me a cheese cake (my favorite dessert).  I really do have the best husband anyone could wish for. :dance:

Again, many thanks.  I feel very blessed to have friends like all of you!

Favourite style of art: Fractals/ Fantasy and Sci-fi / Nature Photography

Favourite comic book character: Nightcrawler



For abstract and fractal artists: How do you decide on a title for a particular piece of art? 

24 deviants said I just use the first thing that comes to mind before I post it.
21 deviants said I often agonize over what to name a finished piece until I have just the right title
18 deviants said It depends, sometimes I have a title in mind when I start and sometimes it's... whatever
11 deviants said Other: Please comment
6 deviants said I research clever titles to use for my work.
4 deviants said I just use numbers, it's a whole lot easier!
3 deviants said My titles usually describe the season or color of my work.
2 deviants said I usually think about a title before I begin working on a piece
No deviants said I use the abstract title generator website most of the time.
