Digital collages of several underwater images ...and a 1935 illustration of swimming styles. Sometimes I feel like I am crawling and trying to surface...but it's so beautiful down there I'm not sure why I'd want to?

Wondering why?

I have started a collage journal for 2010- random thoughts and feelings, but I will attempt to do at least one a week.
This is the first one.

From this: (well obviously a few more than these, but this makes a nice photo)

To this:

To this...TA DA!

I haven't created a lot of artwork lately, mostly because I've been exercising my creativity in a slightly different way- yes, I'm showing off.
How about these beauties? Your applause is deafening, thank-you, you're too kind.
I'd like to thank Mother Nature- I just couldn't have done it without you babe!

Rebecca's wildflower dress

I spotted this wonderful painting at How About Orange in an ad for one of her sponsors; the Sebastian Foster gallery, and it turns out to be titled "Rebecca wore a dress of wildflowers" by Amanda Blake.

More Spoonflower

I'm very happy with my latest Spoonflower fabrics- the colours are spot on and the the printing is excellent! The only problem I have is with the scale- all my responsibility, not Spoonflower's. I may need to reduce the size of the motifs... not sure...the photos are of the fabric laid out on an outdoor folding chair to give you a sense of scale. What do you think Weezie and Simone?
I'll be putting these up for sale now too at Spoonflower.
(There's a slight hitch with the yellow and grey deco flowers but the botanical is available for sale now.)

2010...how'd we get here so fast?

Can't believe it's 2010- my passport runs out this year, and when I got it 10 years ago I distinctly remember thinking at the time that 2010 was forever away. But it's not- it's here, and we're all going to have to start saying "Twenty Ten" because "Two Thousand and Ten" takes too long.
Those are my profound thoughts for the beginning of the year. Deep huh?
I have been enjoying some of the round-ups of the best photos of 2009 though- check out a few of these via photojojo.
