The Promise of Living

Yet another card design, this time a thank-you for some members of the Angeles Chorale who have been working tirelessly to put together our concert taking place this Saturday!  I was inspired by one of the songs we're singing entitled "The Promise of Living" by Aaron Copland.  Had a little fun with custom Photoshop brushes to make the field, and heavily modified an old photo I snapped along highway 5 for some cloudage.  Someday I might learn how to paint clouds by hand... but why bother when I can take pictures?  God does a better job painting clouds than I ever could!

The composition is a little wonky because the finished card will have text.  But who needs the rule of thirds anyway. ;)

Crunch time at work.  It's nice to draw and do something completely different now and again.  Have you seen the extended trailer for MOH yet?  You can catch it here:

My shots: the shepherd (and goat! :D), the ATV, and the floor collapsing (which was quite a challenge).
