I decided to start my spring photography features with this Daisy photograph I took years ago. It has a special place in my heart. My nephew came into the house proudly carrying this beautiful daisy holding it out as a gift. He found it and picked it all by himself just for his grandma . . . straight from her own flower garden! I love when kids do that, and of course my mother loved the gift no matter where it came from. Of course I had to photograph this special daisy.
I recently uploaded our 500th image at Murdock’s Gallery! And, I’m not stopping at 500! We definitely plan to add a lot more over the year. You can expect to see more photographs, personal artworks, illustrations and videos.
What to expect this year, well for those interested, I plan to continue my animal series, and it will ultimately turn into far more than just a series. I have enough animal and wildlife illustrations planned to eventually make a separate portfolio page just for these images. It is something I really enjoy drawing/painting at the moment, and I’m fully embracing it.
I’m also working as an illustrator for an author who has a year long project planned. At the moment I’m not sure exactly what I can say, but as I get permission, I’ll see if I can eventually share some of the sketches and finished work. Stay tuned for more info about that in the summer.
Along with my animal/wildlife series, I’d also like to begin working more heavily on illustrations for my own personal story that I began writing during Nanowrimo last November.
And last but not least, I definitely plan to continue photography, but I’m also planning to do some videos of my photograph adventures.
Hopefully by the end of the year I’ll be posting another message saying I’ve reached 750.
