The cover of the book is my own work. I photographed the clouds and the clock and painted the clouds. I played with the face of the clock to allow the clouds to show through. I have used the clock in many photo shoots of newborns where I would set the time at their birth time. And I have used it in high school senior portrait sessions for emphasis on that momentus time in their life. I debated what time to set the clock at for the book cover, and it seemed there was not really a perfect time to set it to, so I decided to leave it up to the reader's imagination regarding any hidden meaning on the time of the clock. I also created the custom gradation of gold on the word Spirit. I sampled a photo of gold bars and worked with the pattern over the word.
The clock will also be used on the next book The Dreaming Child. I am looking forward to seeing how this all unfolds.
