i like to hibernate
stay inside
clean out my studio
purge my closets
organize my taxes
read a lot
watch old movies
and day dream...............

how many more days 'til spring??
i can't wait to get out there
i love the feel of the dirt in my hands

the winter gives me a chance to rest up,
plan a new layout for part of my garden
it gives me something to focus on
which gets me through the next few months
and i'm forced to sit at the computer
the rest of the year i always have an excuse
to be outside
but now i find myself sitting every few hours
playing with my photos


above, one it took up north while
visiting some friends
layered over some texture

the original photo

cropped and added the poster edge filter

a background i made of old book pages and sheet music
covered with gesso
once i layered the two in photoshop
it was fun to try out all the blending modes
