f Following my dreams... - Art Eye Candy

Following my dreams...


I've done a lot of talking about it, a lot of blogging about it, 
and definately a LOT of dreaming about it...

Yesterday and later today, I'm actually doing it.

I'm writing my book proposal.
it's happening.

I've actually sent one copy off to the publishers.

Woo Hoo.

It's really exciting, and scary, but mostly good.
I'm not even sure if the idea is good that I have, but I ran it past a very close trusted friend (who is not afraid to say she doesn't like something) and it got the 'thumbs up'.

I'm hoping that the 'idea' at least is accepted by some lovely Editor out there and soon we can have our very own Art Eye Candy book full of tutorials,techniques and treats... how cool would that be?

I have to admit though, it's hard going writing these things...
so far I've done 12hrs and 4 drafts, 
I'm in awe of people who write lots of books.
The only problem that it has left me with is that I've not had much arty time, 
and won't till I get it finished.

Still it's all for a good cause, and I've said this before but, 
if you don't put yourself 'out there', no one's going to come knocking on your door.

I did have a little time to play with some of my images in a new iPhone app though,
(called Percolator)

LOOK...


doesn't it do lovely things to the image?


it gives them a sort of Gustav Klimt quality, don't you think?
(he is one of my favorite artists by the way)
Check out some of his images

So off to the keyboard for me,
enjoy your day.

Really hoping your book gets past this first hurdle. I love the way that app has enhanced your already lovely images.
