Again it's been a long time since my last journal update. I've been away for most of the past month working. I had a good time up in some very remote areas... in the past week I finished the job up north of Armstrong, Ontario and traveled to the Sioux Lookout area to burn the slash piles north of there. This worked out very nicely since that is the town where my 6-year-old daughter Lauren lives with her mom. This meant I was able to visit with her at nights while I was back in town
I have some decent fire photos to share from my experiences out there also.
The book cover deal I mentioned in my previous journal has gone through and I'm very excited about it... I thought I'd give you guys and gals a peak at the results:
A publishing company has purchased my photo Beware This Eve
to use as the book cover for the German version of the Norman Partridge novel 'Dark Harvest' which will be available in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Once again my thanks go out to ~hakahanna
for discovering the shot here at dA and doing the preliminary artwork you see here... thank you Hanna!
I also want to send out a huge thanks to my dear friend *Buble
for actually mailing her oil painting of my daughter to me!:
I can't describe how full of joy I was to receive this precious piece of art... It's hanging above the mantle now where I can see it and be reminded of my precious little girl every day. Thank you Karen ... I haven't forgotten my obligations to you
My prints continue to sell both online and locally and I just want to remind you deviantART members that if you purchase any two of my prints (8x10 or larger), I'll buy you a months subscription ... just note me that you have done so because dA does not reveal the buyers identity. Also could whoever purchased the 16x20 print of 'Faith' contact me? I'm eager to get some feedback as to it's quality at that size since I've only seen an 8x10 of it....thanks!
A bit of contest news: I've picked my three favorites from the submissions to ... We're just waiting on the results from the other judges. I'll be featuring the winner in my journal... to all those who entered: Good Luck!
So I'm miserably behind on my comment replies as usual and I hope you understand .. but I should be around for awhile now and can hopefully catch up soon ... If you've sent me a note in the past month and haven't received a reply it's because I'm currently about 60 notes behind
...those are my first priority! In the meanwhile take care of yourselves and I'll be talking with you soon!
Don't forget to use these great links once and awhile!:RANDOM DEVIANT
