The season aren't as dramatic here in the South Pacific. Though officially the start of winter, spring, summer, and fall is marked on our calendars, I only notice subtle shifts from warm & windy, to chilly & wet.
I'd like to pretend that this yellowing leaf from my garden is dramatically changing with the season, but really its just mildly sick or something. Very few of our plants are seasonal so everything stays quite green here, even over winter.
I don't mean to criticize nature, I just miss the seasons sometimes. Without really realizing it, I was missing Minnesota last week when I made this collage. It definitely has an Autumn feel, but see all those squirrels? yeah, we don't have them in this country.
Here is Minnesota showing off. My bother Joel took this photograph after a recent spring storm. I am going in may but I think all the spring storms will be over by then.
and in the studio.......
It's my husband band (I have done all their illustration thus far, its a steady gig :)... want to hear what they sound like? check them out here.
Speaking of steady gigs, I just spoke with the NZ wedding magazine and I have agreed to work as the illustrator of the etiquette column for the next 4 issues. three cheers for verbal contracts. !!!
all for now,
