Poinsettia -- Christmas 2004
I scanned the leaves from our family poinsettia plant to create this.

This is by far my favourite Christmas one. I love poinsettias, makes me feel much warmer and more comfortable than snow does on a wintry day!

I've been using this wallpaper on my desktops/laptops since 2004. It's still one of my favorites.

You'll find that the images I posted after adding the comments system have a lot more feedback than the ones I posted before. Glad you like this one Zach!

I'm in agreement with Andrew, it would be awesome to have a full dual-widescreen version of this (and an iPad HD version), or maybe an updated version entirely!

Beautiful. It really is.



Well thought out nearly flawless in every way, some small areas of texture have slight crowding and fracture, other than that, which is a very small issue if at all, this image contains great use of depth of field, a well thought out tri-analogous colour scheme and most of all a subject matter that pulls you away from your every day work on the computer and inspires you to imagine the possibilities of its context.



Thank you for this wonderful image.

"Would have loved it but..."
The image looks too digital. It doesn't look realistic enough. My favourite wallpapers from your entire collection have been ones that take an unrealistic scene and make it look real. I like fantasy and dreams and I would love it even better if the fantasy and dreams actually came to life.



The trees here look too digital rendered. The snow looks fake really. It doesn't have that fluid, natural feel to it even though the overall image gives off the feeling of having a stroll down a path in the woods during winter.

California Poppies
These flowers used to grow in a field near my house in California. I thought they were so beautiful that I created this wallpaper to remember them.

In spring, the fields and hillsides around here are dotted with these bright golden flowers, and my screen is similarly decorated with this lovely image. You capture the cheerful beauty of the California state flower perfectly, Ryan, thank you. :)

I really like this image, but noticed there is no 3200x1200 version.

I spend most of my day typing in transparent shells so a wallpaper like this one is perfect since it doesn't wash out my fonts. Plus it looks so good!

Ryan,



Believe it or not this is my favorite work of yours. Of all the wallpaper I've used over the last 10+ years this has been on my desktop the most.



There are a lot of things I like about it (the colors, composition, etc) but the best thing is the figure standing there waiting...



It's great art when you just a single frame can get you to think.



Thanks for this an all the other great works you have on your site.

eerie beautiful peaceful, under it all...a sense of menace. Nothing that you can point to. Just a sense that you dont really matter in the grand scheme. Im not even a fan of the darker genre's of art but this picture...i rated it a ten. Thank you

I enjoy this scene very much, the color and reflections from the water make this very much an enjoyable summer favorite. It would be exciting to see what this setting would look like with new technology.
