Statues and Fairies

I’ve been toying with this photo collage for a while.  I had taken photos at Glenveagh National Park in Ireland, and this deer statue was on the grounds of the castle.  I decided to assemble a “fairy” using my photos including a morpho butterfly I saw in Rochester, NY’s Strong museum butterfly garden to be the wings.  I’m planning to get back to Ireland in 2015, and return to Glenveagh.  I’m sure I’ll find more inspiration there, and possibly an Irish fairy or two.

My current college Graphic Design class is challenging me, and practicing using the Wacom graphic tablet at home for different creative ideas is fun.  If I’d had this kind of tool as a kid, wow!!  But I guess it’s good to be a bit of a kid now, too.  My “inner child” has to be nurtured with some of the same things I did as a child, with a glass of wine thrown in occasionally.
