I haven't posted very often in April as it has been a very busy month. For part of it we were also away visiting family in Ontario. One of the things I wanted to do while I was there was to take images of single or groups of trees with very little around them. I am not able to do that here as there is so much forest. Here are some pictures I took and played with a bit on the computer. I can't wait to use them on book covers!

I often took them for far away ..... zooming in - which gives them a bit of a unreal look - not sure what to call it really, but it is a look I was trying to get. I hope book making days will come soon!

I have been away for a while - not only away from posting to my blog, and away from creating, but also away from home. I am back, but very busy with other work so have had very little time to create. Above is a picture I drew in a new little sketch book I bought. I had the intention to fill it with face drawings or paintings before the end of the year... at the rate I am going that won't happen!

Here is a little photo album that I finally finished today.... I started it over a week ago, but no time to create these days.

and here is the back of the photo album... the book can hold 22 photos. I made it with an old book cover that I covered with paper that I scribbled on with watercolour crayons, drew on top of that, painted over that with a cream coloured acrylic paint - rubbed some of that off added some more paint and a transparent image and then a wax coating on top of it all.
Always fun...
I hope to create more often once again - it keeps me more balanced and content!
