April Fool_I love you BILL!

O, how this spring of love resembleth
The uncertain glory of an April day,
Which now shows all the beauty of the sun,
And by and by a cloud takes all away.

(“The Two Gentlemen of Verona,” Act I, Scene 3, Lines 85-88)

April's Bard

For this digital image I started with one of those old engravings of Shakespeare and a photo I took of my peach tree blooming last year.  (It might not bloom until June this year!)
I used filters and free transform to make the flowery background.  For the drawing/painting I created for William, I used filters, took out the parts of the engraving I didn't like, drew, painted, erased, and left a couple of the elements that I did like. (From the engraving.)
