Re vamped my book cover, my daughter teaching me how to use photo shop to modify my original oil painting. I really like the changes (most of all that I got to do a large part myself). My daughter gets an A+ for patience (not to mention skills). Strange to remember how I once taught her.
If you read carefully you’ll know that my original major was fine art sculpture (top marks anyone that got that one LOL!)
While sculpture tends to be a little hard to accommodate I still like to paint and sketch from time to time. Trees and plants being by far my favourite subjects.
The pictures above and below are the first two of a series I’m working on (very slowly as I tend to write a lot more often) for my apartment.
The two sketches I did in China and happened to have on computer. I constantly gave my work away due to my travels and most of my friends in China have something from me as a remembrance.
I still enjoy painting for recreation and am always trying to capture the beauty and primeval force of nature. Though never quite achieving what I want to communicate I find it relaxing and satisfying.
Happily my “good deed” in putting up one of my sons friends while she gets settled in London has boomeranged back as she’s going to do the Title and photo shop stuff for me (plus teach me basic photo shop for my photos etc.) She just happens to be a pretty young French artist (and an angel) – I am a blessed bunny!.
