Coming up for air


It has been far, far too long since I've written here to you all ...but there is a reason for the long absence -  I've been working non-stop since last December on my book and the past 4 months have been especially focused, intense and often grueling with 10-14 hours of writing, photo editing and creating new work for the pages of the book.

I'm not out of the woods yet, but we've reached a point where I can come up for air. While I know you've not heard from me here, I feel as if I've been speaking to you all non-stop during the whole process given the format of the book we've been working on. I'll get to that more in the coming days, but for now....some photos...here are some items that were created just for the book... more details to follow, as soon as time permits.

A stand-alone Faerie Portal which was created to act as a shelf or mantelpiece decoration:

Another project produced just for the book was this little cutie:


and last, but not least, this was the penultimate tutorial project:

I hope to be able to discuss the book project in more detail soon and these specific examples (and more) shortly. Time is very precious right now as spring is in full swing and the forests and gardens are calling for me to come and make some images in those happy locations. However, this book project is not yet done, so the horses cannot yet be fully let loose to run wild but Oh how they are stamping and snorting in my heart to burst forth and get outside!

This is much more news to share beside this one project as well, but time is very short at the moment, so this will have to do for now...

Thanks to everyone who has kept encouraging me from near and far. Your well-wishes have sustained me more than you know!

Happy Spring, Everyone!
