Cheery before Cherry

I got to go to an event in the bay area this last weekend with a group of friends. This tree was singing to me! Lovely, lovely, lovely!  I was reminded of this poem I posted on the Daily Napkin a couple years ago. As always, I revised it a bit to fit. The many layers of texture in this photo are subtle. I especially enjoy building up layers in a subtle way.

 One of the side benefits of doing the image a day this year, is that I am creating a whole line of images for my Serenity Cards. I’ve been making them large enough and high enough resolution that they are appropriate for high quality printing.  It’s two ways to invest in myself – both my creative self and my business self.
