Progress is slow moving

Even my cat Crash, is having a hard time getting going these days. With Halloween now behind us and Thanksgiving next week, it's been quite busy. Then, add in the mix moving my son's bedroom from upstairs to downstairs, with gobs of toys and clutter from years gone by. Needless to say, the house has pretty much been in chaos. In between all the distractions, I continue to work on “A Road map to Dreams”.(the picture on the drawing table) I have taken the original piece and reworked it into two pictures. I have been doing a lot of experimenting in Photoshop. Putting down flat color then printing it out and playing around with watercolor pencil on top. I am really enjoying this process. I am trying to have this thing out before Christmas. Planning to send it to Highlights along with the poem that it goes with.

This year I am actually looking forward to the dead of winter. It's my hope that instead of cabin fever, I will be productive and inspired.

…As for Crash, I think he'll probably sleep most of the winter away :)
