I started doing something different with my art this year. I had looked at Heather Bruton's website and clicked on some links to how she created some of her artwork. I loved the idea! So, I started collecting some of the pictures I have taken of clouds, from plane trips, and scenery from around where we live and at John Bryant park, and pictures of our White German Shepherd. I started looking closely at them and thinking to myself how great this one would look with this or that etc. I saved a special place on my harddrive just for the pics I was going to use for creating pictures from them. I 'cropped' different areas that I would need to really work on, hands, feet, positioning of heads etc., of my soul-mate, WhiteShepherd and our dog Crystal.

I have to admit I really enjoyed putting this all together and seeing creations come to mind!

Now, just to put the pieces together on the computer. This was fun too. I could manipulate and manuever how ever I wanted to! Oh, and then came the fun part. When I would get an idea I would sketch out my main characters and then use the photos for backgrounds. I scanned in my sketches and then worked on them in Paint Shop Pro 5 and Adobe Photo Shop 5.0. This was the first time in many many years that I had created anything on the computer! I was really enjoying myself working on these on the computer. *I haven't colorized my original sketches though, not yet anyway.*
