Woman Gardening, Hazen Chickens and Reno
I was thinking about Mother's Day this week and trying to think of a design for a card. A woman gardening came to mind and I painted this illustration. It didn't seem to fit the Mother's Day category so it became a thinking of you card instead for a gardening friend.
This is the published card in my Greeting Card Universe store.

I went on a photo walk Sunday. I got up early before the sunrise and got to Hazen, Nevada just as the sun was rising over the mountains. There were great clouds in the sky and I liked the pink on the distant mountains.
There were some friendly chickens (friendly because they thought I was going to feed them) but they got close enough for a bit for me to get some pictures of them. They are pretty chickens, well taken care of. Nice variety of chickens too.
I then drove into Reno and walked around Virginia Lake. Loads of birds there and people love to feed them. I liked this row of ducks in the lake and the houses beyond. Nice symmetry.
I walked over by the Truckee river down the river walk and saw this great reflection in a large window. Just as I was framing and focusing a couple walked by and I was able to get their reflection too. Loved it.
