After some searching and reviewing I found a few images I had worked with when we first moved to Vancouver Island. The quail photo was pure luck- captured through a window as he surveyed the yard from our deck. The vivid yellow and green images come from a photo I took of blooming Scotch broom backlit by the sun giving the seed pod and blooms a semi-translucent quality. They’re a brilliant ray of sunshine to the eye but unfortunately and invasive species here on the island.

I reimagined the photos to add texture and give them a painterly quality. Now I’ve taken the images and created notecards and prints.

More digital images to follow – working on these have inspired me and the ideas are flowing. Coming soon: “dogs I know”

  1. I got a journal that you made that has the quail on it, and I love it! I saved it for a special trip, and now it’ll forever hold my memories of that experience.

    • Thanks. I was happy to rediscover him in my photo archives. Someone asked if I had any crows but any I’ve attempted to take have been blurry and/or too small. It’s difficult to sneak up on a crow! I’ll keep trying though. 🙂
