Friends, we had a long weekend, Australia Day ( = happy birthday, dear Rhonda!). I have bad news and good news. Joints' pains in hands bother me. Need a break for typing. Keyboard work hurts hands. Hand specialists are helping me ( *two yrs ago, the doctor did my hand surgery! Great success.) So, please pardon my blog's holiday leave for a while and keep patience.
Next, a publishing team will give me feedback. Then, we will work on images more, if necessary. Friends, get surprised? Yes, creating a picture book takes such a long time and a lot of processes.
The publishing team, Editor Helen, Author Matt and other staff are very caring and so sweet. They kindly give me time as much as I need to get better.
This break will be a good time to keep away from my own work. And come back to it to examine the images like a third party or in an objective view. I really look forward to feedback and to working with my wonderful publishing team!
One day, I'll post on my editor/publisher, so sweet, very thoughtful and wise. Helen is already an Australia legend and highly respected in publishing industry. Shhhhh?! Friends, I've already made her portrait in a loose style. She said with a wonderful humour, "I'm honoured!" and added, "20 yrs younger than me!" Well, Friends, I'll leave it to your decision if it looks younger or not. Look forward to my post on Helen with her portrait in the near future! ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ I feel I'm very blessed to work with brilliant Author Matt, admirable Editor/Publisher Helen and superb Mentor Ann.
Now, my hands will take a rest.
Thank you for understanding and I really appreciate your great cheers. Please pardon my few comments/responses or only short "text" messages on your blogs. BUT I always enjoy your blog posts!
Friends, take care. Happy Painting!!
