Illustration Friday: Crunchy


Fallen pine needles on the forest floor, crispy and crunchy under your feet.

The fresh, falling snow might muffle the sounds of the next passers-by.

I've always been a sucker for these Charlie Brown trees. They warm my heart.


One sepia pen, one white pencil, one brown paper envelope and five minutes.

For Illustration Friday's prompt: crunchy

  12. I sure do love what you do with brown paper. It's hard to believe, with a word like crunchy, something so delicate and poetic could come about. Leave it to you, girl!

  19. Great little tree. All Christmas trees need a good warm home don't they? And I love your banner, I'll have to read back and find the significance. Are you doing a painting for all 12 days? That would be magnificent!

    Thanks the comment on my blog, sorry you're feeling a little homesick. Hope it passes soon.
