I'm still fairly new at taking pictures with the digital and I do have a lot of fun with it. Some days I get a decent shot and its perfect for manipulating.
But then I get the perfect shot (for me) and it doesn't need anything but maybe enlarged , print and frame. The bug was a surprise.

I am sure if I found the right staff I would get so much more work done. But the pay of a good rubbing and a bit of cat nip really doesn't get me much except being entertained.
Such a Monday!
We woke to -3c this morning compared to Friday when it was -33c! And with freezing rain it was another good day to stay in the studio to work on some major projects. Buying cut flowers is always a good start for me to set up a colour study. I'll also pose the setting a few times to see if there is anything I can work with.
Depending on what I am doing I will even keep notes in a sketch book which really comes in handy a few month(years) later.
This is my favorite and have plans on the drawing board for it.

I also made a cushion for my sister using left over material from a window seat cover that she had made. One side of the cushion is woven with 2 different materials then satin stitch over the raw edges. The other side is panels over laid to one and other and 3 different size yo yos to make a rosette to use for the closure.
