Digital Art: Wind Woman (in progress)

I’ve had the idea for this one kicking around for a while. Actually it dates back to a piece I did way back when, just out of college, with a woman’s¬†silhouetted profile and leaves blowing in the wind.

Now she’s back. The picture here is the initial “sketch” in Photoshop. I suspect I’ll be changing the landscape a bit and maybe adding a few wind turbines. I’ll post more as she progresses.

My IRS Agent is a Real Dog

Actually it has nothing to do with the IRS. If it did I probably would have made it a pit bull. A drooling one.

Part of the forthcoming  Partnership With Earth website project is a sustainable living audit. Somehow the idea of a dog at the desk was appealing, to put a little lightness and humor into it.  This was my first version:

I chose a standard poodle because my dog-crazy 13 year old daughter wants a puppy and we’ve been researching dog¬†breeds and have pretty much narrowed it down to that one. I like to run and she likes to train dogs to do tricks so we had to have a breed that¬†likes both activities. (I never thought of poodles as¬† runners but according to a bunch of¬†runner’s forums I visited they’re pretty stellar at long distance running.)¬†¬†Standard poodles are¬†very smart but not as hyper as Border collies (another one we’d considered.) And the no-shed thing is a definite plus. (Our Lab-Boxer mix, Jasmine, is currently in full swing with¬†her biannual ritual of sprinkling the house liberally with little black hairs.)

Anyway,¬†we ended up having the dog (the one in the picture, not the potential and as yet theoretical new addition to the family) actually filling out the audit rather than simply inviting one to do so. So here’s the final version:

It was pretty fun to do. All the overlapping meant having to really keep track of the layers.

Now, if only I could get Clara to train Jasmine to do the taxes!

If there had been room it would have been nice to include a group of people pressing apples for cider
