Rainy Saturday

Perfect for working on a project without feeling guilty about not being in the garden.
This is a picture of a February sunrise in our backyard.
I decided to manipulate it a little with my trial version of Photoshop. Before this, I was a Photoshop virgin, but I must say I'm hooked. I've been trying all sorts of stuff with it. I thought about simplifying it a bit by taking out some of the trees, but I kinda like the chaos of them.

So here's the pic after I played with it and got to where I really liked it. I really just saturated the colors a bit; warmed up the sky and cooled down the snow. Then I printed it on a piece of fabric.

Now comes the really fun part where I get to expand on it. I'll add more fabric, paint some stuff and maybe add some beading or other embellishment to emphasize the contrast between the hot and the cold.


  1. I can't wait to see what you do with this!

  2. don't forget what little lulu sang, "so when it's raining, it's not raining anymore, it's pouring violets." or something like that. we go do the beach when it's raining, mostly storming. i love the power of the elements.

    miss you.
