Decided to use one of my redwood tree drawings for the holiday card. Did a few variations as usual and had a hard time making up my mind which I preferred.
This was way way back and I still like the designs today. – I shot some trumpet vine greenery across the street and used the same photo image to repeat using many graphic treatments with a few fonts, colors, textures and vectors.
The client requested a photo-manipulation to see what the mantel would look like with a dark paint or black bricks and also put a on dark wooden top. The photo on the left, with white paint is the real mantel. It also has a faux wooden top photoshopped to show what it would look like with wood, and not a painted top.
Old project in my old studio out on Yosemite street in the San Francisco Bay View area. – I bought up a ton of oval wooden boxes and painted the outside. (and inside) – Here they are, on my table in the studio. ~>

A few other studio shots. I was working on an acrylic painting, on canvas.
The shot below was taken on an open studio day. Not sure what year.
