The Mystery of the Morphing Snowdrops...

It's a mystery. Or rather, partly a mystery.

There I was, craving signs of spring. And in the absence of same, I put pen to tablet and created these snowdrops on the left.

So far, so well-behaved.

But I follow my instincts. So I went with it when the snowdrops morphed into this...

And somehow, I still went with it as it inspired me through re-building and re-launching the Selfworks.Net site...

It doesn't mean I'm going back to the way I was before BoundingSquirrel. Or that this blog will stop. (I need a place to share pictures!).

But it's interesting (and mysterious) just how far one teeny-tiny inspiration can take you.

Digital painting has taught me to be in the moment, and to "go with it". And that is a habit I'll not be morphing out of in a hurry.

Digital Painting for an Elephant Lover

It's my stepmum's birthday at the end of the week. I've done this digital painting because she loves elephants...Hope she likes it...

PS. Update on Feb 4th...Yay! She loved it. Phew!
PPS. And now you can enjoy (and customise) this design on cards and gifts as well, like this postcard:

New Digital Painting: Sweet Peas in a London Street

This is my first digital painting of the new year. And, continuing the never-in-the-right-season theme, it's a conscious attempt to think about warm summer days, when sweet peas poke through the fence of one of the houses around here.

Enjoy, and if you're reading this when it's posted, a Happy New Year to you.
