~ Paradise, Found

This island dream is available at
my "Small Works" art shop.
The backstory -
A year or so ago, I found myself impatiently standing in line behind a woman wearing a striped sweater. As usual, expecting the unexpected, I had my camera in hand and was fiddling with it to pass the time. Later that night, while uploading the day's photos, I saw that I'd accidentally snapped a pic of the back of that striped sweater. I thought about deleting it, but saved it to my "Iffy Stuff" folder, instead.
Look closely at the island 'trees' and 'land' in "Paradise, Found", above, and you'll see the striped pattern of the sweater.
Since then, I've done a couple of other pieces from that same "accidental" photo. If I can find a copy of the original shot (which seems to only exist on a CD my computer refuses to read -- AARRGH!!!) I'll post them for you to see.
These days, I never toss out a crappy photo. They're handy for all sorts of things!

Thanks for all the great comments on my last post, and special thanks to Dr. John, as usual, for sending his "Marathoners" my way!
Speaking of Dr. John, his blog post is so hysterically funny today -- I laughed until I wheezed! Whew! Now, I need a breathing treatment!

It's cloudy, damp, and cool in San Antonio this fine Saturday morning. This is my favorite type of weather, and I'm crossing my fingers in hope of it sticking around a few days.
Have an amazing weekend!
