Lee Shepherd sent me a few pictures from the recent TV show I taped with him and Chuck Langdon. We had a good time. He says that the show looks great and that my story came out well. I will publish the link as soon as he puts it on the Channel 10 website and maybe you will want to listen to me tell my story about the Dalmation Dog.
Tonight I am feeling a little euphoric and relieved. Several weeks ago Patti Digh, 37 Daysposted a request for artists who wanted to contribute an illustration for her up-coming book of essays. We would have 10 days to complete the art work.
Ofcourse, I stuck my hand up. That's been a problem of mine since the first days of school. Always sticking my hand up.
The project has been quite a success for Patti - 120 artists tossed their hats in. She assigned essays. I had two essays to work from - to develop a personal visual interpration. And, by George, I have done it. Completed them today. Six days ahead of the deadline. I am emailing them to Patti as soon as I finish this blog entry.
Its highly likely that one or two others are creating images for the same essays. The publisher will select the ones to use for the book. Ah, always competition.
At this juncture I am not as invested in actually being in the book as I am delighted to have been a part of the project and to have created images that resonate with me as good efforts for the assignment.
But most delicious of all - I made composite images from several of my own photos using Photoshop! That program has not beaten me afterall.
This image came from another bit of playing around.
This is FUN! I can pull up to the toasty fire with my laptop and PLAY!
