I really love the theme that Kelli chose for this month but I have to confess to having a bit of creative block about working with it. To try and motivate myself to work in my sketchbook I turned to my favorite way to capture images: my camera. I grabbed my camera and started with some photos from around the studio and then moved outside (thanks to an incredibly warm winter here in Massachusetts taking photos outside in February this year has been a very pleasant experience!), and I thought I'd share some of the "close up" views I saw through my camera lens ...
First from inside the studio...
