Windy days

It is windy here, well, when I took this picture it was windy. I love the view out my studio windows. We returned from Berlin yesterday, and I had a nice day in the studio today. I worked on some images that I put together quickly, they are a bit different, but I felt in the mood for that. Perhaps I will continue this tomorrow? I am interested in making the move to some more 3D textile pieces, and have been experimenting with this possibility of and on over the last few weeks.
