Ronda, what program are you using? I have several suggestions. Paint Shop Pro. Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop, Photo Impact (great effects) It's also fun to create something and then take it through 2 or 3 programs to see the effects you can come up with.

Basic paint. I call it pixel art! I am out of canvas and need my art time.

Ronda asked about about software for art.

1. Adobe Photoshop. Costs plenty, but is excellent and I own stock in the company.
2. Corel Paintshop Pro. Costs little, but is excellent. I used it for years and loved it.
3. GIMP. Free from gimp.org. Excellent. The name is not as bad as it sounds. It stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program.

Once you get one of these, check the web for users groups. Paintshop has a lot of people out there using it for artsy stuff. I haven't checked for Photoshop groups, but it is the premier graphic program by reputation. The other two pretty much match it in functionality, though. Too close to call.

All of them are wonderful. You can't go wrong with any.

I'm a pencil and paper artists, so we need some real computer artists to post here because I don't know if there are any other creative pieces that are more geared to artsy people. Adobe Illustrator, maybe? Also powerful, also expensive, but Paintshop Pro has a vector-based drawing set included. Illustrator is largely vector based.
