The two girls are so cute! You said it perfectly Kate ... and drew it perfectly as well! Your words really touched me and even made my tears well up!
Oh Kathleen - this is just a marvelous piece on so many levels! I hope everyone clicks on the image to see all the glorious detail - it is so beautifully rendered - I was just staring and staring at it - every little part so perfect! It is a wonderful composition - great movement, nice perspective. And the little girls themselves - just so adorable - love their faces, their clothing detail, everything. I know I'm gushing, but for some reason this really struck a chord with me - just beautiful. And you are so right - it wasn't that long ago this wouldn't have happened - what a shame.... Thank you for creating this - I just love it!
beautiful illustration and sentiment, kathleen!!!marianne
Yeah, how strange, and it wasn't so long ago!! This is a very touching image Kate, and how true--kids teaching adults!!
This is beautiful. It reminds me of myself as a child.
Ah! the innocence of infancy.Beautiful.Bello, molto bello.Cata
very true, like this concept. they are very sweet and I love the cheerful colors. nice work.
ahhh! what a happy illustration!!teri
This is soooo sweet. they are really cute. Nice style. Great rendering.
So cute. Love the colors
Thanks everyone! I had this concept in mind, and the challenge for me (besides finishing the illustration in time to post it for IF this week) was to create a serious social commentary in my whimsical illustration style. Little kids aren't aware of prejudice; they just want someone nice to play with.
Absolutely gorgeous! Perhaps your best piece yet? So sweet and beautiful.
very true. Fantastic use of color, composition, movement and line. The girl's expressions are great. Nice work.
nice commentarty and illo
This is really cute. I love it.
So true! Really beautiful sentiments too! :D
Ohh this is sooo cute! Adorable! Wonderful job! *HUGS*
Beautiful illo. Love the perspective.
wow, this is a fantastic piece. nicely done!
This is very touching and very beautiful in many ways. I love the way the flowers and butterflies mingle!
So sweet - this is a wonderful illustration! Beautiful color, composition, and I love the background! Great message :)
his is such a beautiful illustration. First of all - it's so pretty and full of happiness. But most significant is its message. Children don't naturally have hate in their hearts; they learn it from adults. You're right - they should teach us!
very nice perspective and social comment... :)
Such charm and energy!
very sweet illustration.
lovely piece, I love girl's faces!
Hi Kate. I'm glad you left a comment at my blog (thanks by the way :o)) because it led me here! Don't know what happened but I missed seeing your IF entry.. I like to go one by one (if I can) and missed yours somehow.This is so beautiful. Love these two girls! The characters look so real....they look like your typical neighborhood little girls, you know? Your colors are vivid and happy and the perspective you chose for this piece is wonderful.. Love it! :o)
Amen sister!Wishing you a great weekend. Love this drawing. ;-)
Glorious piece! And what a precious message. It's nice to know we are moving forward, slowly but surly. These little girls are a fine reminder of the interconnectedness of all of us.Thank you!
It's a beautiful image Kathleen!
beautiful and rich colours, wonderful message and your children have beautiful faces!
I grew up in inner city Boston back in the 50's. Sad to say this thinking was all around me. I'm so glad I wouldn't have any of it!!These girls are adorable. And you're right about kids...having fun isn't about color, it's about heart :)
Wow...beautifully done, Kate. I really like the way you illustrated this. Is it colored pencil?
How very true. I like the sweetness and innocence in this image.
Hey you, don't be shy! Share your thoughts!
