This was the month when I began to draw over background photos
It all began when I photographed the modeling platform
while waiting for the model to return.
Then it occurred to me that the figure would look better
against some idyllic scene pulled off the internet
-- in this case, a waterfall in Maui
-- or perhaps set into an English formal garden
Then I tried putting the figure into my own backyard
The other settings, so far, all come from sites located nearby
-- a forest preserve or a friend's garden.
That's the DesPlaines River in the background
We had an early snowfall, soon after Halloween
