IF: Lonely

Funny, I always feel the "loneliest" in a group of people? Not my family, I am thrilled to spent as much time as I can with them- but  I hardly ever feel lonely when I am by myself.
This is a portrait of my daughter, its okay, but I am  almost done with an even bigger one of her at Arches National Park in Utah , which also has a couple hundred hand stitched butterflies, I kid you not!
This one, the background is the Salt Flats, going West out of Salt Lake City. It is a very, very lonely place. Did it as a sample to get some book cover work, so far, no luck- will be sending out the new one this fall hopefully- have improved on the portraits I think.


  1. I'm with you. I feel the most lonely when I'm with a group of people. Nice work!

  2. This is wonderful Julia. How long does something like this take you? Good luck with the book cover work.
