Illustration Friday: Stir




Underneath the heavy blanket of Winter, signs of Spring begin to stir.

The Robins woke me with their song this morning and I feel hopeful!

  2. So happy my "Cousins" woke you this morning! This is gorgeous - bright, full of light and airy joy!!!

    Your painting made me smile - and that's not easy this early in the NOW-DARK-AGAIN morning! (But I will be happier tonight - as daylight lingers!)

    BRAVA Lo!

    Love,

    ♥ Robin ♥

  5. how how did you do those shadows?!

    they are my favorite part of this collage. looking at this makes me want to watch you in action soon. plus lunch and laughter of course.

    thank you for such a nice wake up jolt. hope SPRINGS eternal for us today--an hour more of light and an hour less of grey snow.

    yay!

  6. KJ and Suki...what shadows?

    This is two photographs, one of winter and one of spring flowers which I turned to sepia tones. Is that what you see as shadows?

    Anyway, I'm glad you like it no matter what you see!
