Preparing new artwork gifts for Christmas

I've been continuing my colour journey, three steps forward, two back but progress is being made!

The journey

...goes on and on, down from the door where it began

So what have I been up to? I've been going back over my unprocessed RAW images in the digital darkroom and choosing some to work on in colour.

All this old work was taken with black and white in mind and that's meant that I've paid particular attention to the composition and tonal relationships. Of course, this in turn means that I've had a great success rate when taking them down the colour route.

Having worked on a couple of dozen, I've now created a whole bunch of new products, mostly Gallery Prints and Stretch-frame wrapped canvases in my Zazzle store, in time for the Christmas season.

If you know anyone who loves windsurfing, then this image as a Gallery Print or Wrapped Canvas would make a great gift for them. Which would you choose?

The gallery prints look so good that I've created many using that as a style of presentation for my very best black and white work. Here's an example Gallery Print of a Cosmos flower and bud, side-lit by the setting sun:

Do you know folks that would enjoy receiving one of these as a gift? Would you be delighted if you got one as a gift?

I love reading such feedback - and it helps to keep me producing work that my public enjoys, so if you've got a few moments to spare, you know what to do!
