I have even done this one image of trees in the fall, the sky was such an intense blue the color of the leaves just popped - I love this picture and have done at least 3 versions. And leaves, well, I collect leaves. It falls in that category with taking pictures of trees. I don't need any more but that doesn't stop me from picking one up that is just so beautiful I have to press it between pages of phone books that never get used for anything else.
My latest serious is the great horned owl. I did a little 5x7 and it sold immediately. On a recent flight I started a 6x6 from the same photo, I finished it last week. Going to seal some works this week, I have been adding handmade paper to the edges and it too will be ready to show or sell!
What's next? Started a elephant on coffee stained paper, have this black swam image that keeps haunting me, really need to start it but in my mind it is a bigger piece...maybe 12x16 or larger, still thinking larger. We shall see what the week brings!
