Still working on the landscaping. There is such a multitude of vegetation that it is taking a bit longer than normal to fill it all in. I have to keep very aware of the positive/negative balance much more than I would otherwise, so that the house is not overwhelmed and it all gets too dark. I am pretty pleased with this so far, though. I will use the watercolors to darken under the house and will probably go in afterwards to fill in the ink where I think it needs it.
And yesterday I got an unexpected note. Last August I was approached for the possibility of using one of my architectural drawings to be used as cover art for US State Department “English Teaching Forum” journal some time next year. I sent them four different images to be in competition with I don’t know how many others, and I just received an email informing me that one of them had been chosen. I was quite happily surprised because I had been told the person selected would be notified by the end of September. When there was no word, I figured someone else had gotten it. I don’t mind saying that I am rather pleased. Sometimes “out of the blue” is a great thing. I’ll post a picture when I get my copy!!
