The background of my current book cover work depicts spring gardens as well as the "Tudor palace." I took inspiration from the legendary and fantasy-prone Thomas Kinkade to create the environment. But this is, more or less, a real environment, my own area in springtime. There are azaleas of many brilliant pinks and lavender, dogwoods in white, and an abundance of spring green. Then it is all gone. Kinkade is only right once a year. The gazebo symbolizes a wedding since this story from Stasheff is a romantic comedy. The yellow thing at left is part of a character's costume. I should be done with this soon and you'll get to see the whole thing.
