New Inspiration

This is the starting point for a new piece featuring Upcountry Maui. I am "building" this shed in a more scenic location with a jacaranda tree.

You can see the photo of the jacaranda tree I've used for inspiration on the right.

I'm not sure I'm at all happy with the start of this project. I was envisioning something a little more sophisticated. I may scrap the landscape and start over.

Maybe I'll start with the tree and go from there, since the tree and the shed are the focus. I can always add the background and landscape later, in my usual fashion. Backgrounds, though never an afterthought, always seem to come to me at the end.

The picture of the shed and jacaranda tree look like a wonderful inspiratinon to me- I hope you find a way to work it through!

I don't know why, but regardless of the browser I use, I can't see your new header. q
