This is my piece for Illustration Friday’s "Sprout" theme. I was drawn to this theme in large part because of all the little sprouts — my four children and their friends — who populate my world.
This piece was a stretch for me because the girl is a black and white image from an old postcard that I played with in Photoshop. My friends Karen (you really need to see her new blog) and Joanne have encouraged me to play with computer graphics and nurtured me along. I haven’t mastered it yet, but I enjoyed working with this sweet little girl.
I have no knitting news or pictures because, well, i had no clue that twelve repeats in the straight section on my Clapotis were going to take so long! I have to give a lecture tomorrow and am driving over with some friends. I am hoping to get a few repeats done while driving. In the meantime, I am daydreaming about starting a vest out of Peace Fleece for my baby and socks for both the Judge and myself out of hand-dyed merino. Hopefully, I will have new knitting pictures by the weekend.
