I haven’t been doing as many of these as usual lately. There are three reasons for that: 1) Properly removing the background requires a lot of wrist and elbow motion, and if I do too much of it, my right arm aches; 2) I’ve done enough of these now that I only want to spend time on photos that offer a challenge. I can’t always tell if something will work until I’m well into the process; 3) I’m writing again, and there’s only so much time in the day. I really want to finish this book, so right now my priorities are work first, then writing, then art.
Fall is right around the corner. I can’t believe it’s September already, but after the summer we’ve had, maybe that’s a good thing.
That’s it for now! See you next time.
