clover chain

This is work-in-progress for a book cover illustration. There's a lot of symbolism in it that has to do with the content of the book, which I won't try to explain here. The title of the book will be in Japanese, and I don't know yet whether the words will be printed vertically or horizontally. In Japanese, it can go either way.  Hopefully this image will work in either case. On the other hand, I'll probably wake up tomorrow with a totally different idea, and start over from scratch.


  1. This is so lovely. Your work always makes me smile. Looking forward to seeing the finished cover!

  2. This is so beautiful! There are so many things I love about it. The curl, the weaving... it's really eye catching.

  3. No matter which direction you decide to print the title, the painting is delightful! Your work is always strong and vital!

    Big Hugs,

  4. Keep us in the loop! Very exciting for you Debbie.

  5. Delightful is what I'd say to describe this as well!

    The ATC group will be starting up around Sept/Oct. I do hope you'll still join us. I'm in the middle of moving and setting up a new nest/studio. Lots to do while working full time. And I'm going to get back to blogging!

    More later.....:)
