One of the sweetest yet! Great looks of wonderment on their faces. I'll hold a great thought for the book job :)
adorable characters and wonderful piece to add to ur portfolio
love the slightly unsure expression the girl has...wonderful soft style too...best wishes for the project too
The little girl's expression is adorable! It's always great to see kids discover nature. :) Good luck on the assignment.
Kathleen! This illustration is beautiful! I love the wonderment and curiosity of children and you've captured that look perfectly! And, I have to admit, this is soooo uncanny. I'm sending you pics of me as a child and tell me what you think. My mom used to put my hair up exactly like that!
This is fantastic! I love their expressions. Congratulations on the publishing gig!! That is great news. Hope you are getting some rest. Take care. Deb
I like the warmth of the childhood and the harmony of colors. Very pretty and good gestures of the characters.
Oh they are darling, good luck with the new project, hope you get it:)
love their sweet faces!
They are really sweet. How are you ? I hope you get that children's book assignment.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you. I must say, this is a great portfolio piece. PS. thank for the comment on my pendants... I do them in any color.
I don't think it can get much cuter than this! My boyfriend recently fell in love with the idea of catching bugs in jars. He has trouble keeping them alive! I tell him that in order to keep them alive you have to set them free! haha! :-) Thanks for sharing this wonderful piece
As usual, wonderful illustration and textures in the medium! I love the expressions and colors.
Ohhh how cute! Well done! I hope that you hear the best of the best news about having a children's book published. :) Good luck in the future! Great post! *HUGS*
