Merle has to be one of the most prolific artists I know, and one of the most patient. We were both battling illness this week, but Merle was a sweetheart and sent me a dozen or so images to choose from. They are all gorgeous images, but I think this combination works best (an alternate version is on my Flickr stream, if you are curious). I decided to illustrate "movement" using a long exposure on the water, while Merle froze her movement. It was very interesting to see how we both interpreted this idea, and as an added bonus I had fun editing Merle-style!
