IF: Strings


This painting is not a new concept, just a new angle. I posted the same idea a while back for "stitch" and I wanted to try it again from a different perspective. I still don't know why this little guy is in a hot air balloon high up in the sky, but I'm sure the story will come to me. :)

On another note, my one year blog anniversary is Thursday! Illustration Friday is the reason I started blogging, but my blog has evolved into much more. I'm excited and am in a giving mood, so check back tomorrow for a surprise!

Wow! Another cute little piece.
Same like your cheerfulness, Nessa. The dog is also on the look out for giving, giving, giving.
I just feel your mood here.
Happy blogging, and this's your excited count down to your 1st anniversary.(Thanksgiving & celebration!)
You wouldn't be lonely Nessa...
Your spirit is set high just like this raising star "hot air balloon" on the mission for some amazing races :)
Guess you have some fans out there!
I am one...

This is so sweet - love the angle and the patchwork balloon. Great job.

Love the patchwork balloon! I'm currently working on a goat in a balloon. What is it about animals that makes them hanker for balloon rides?

Really love your illustrations, they are so appealing and endearing. This scene is great and the angle really adds interest. (Your post for 'enough' is really appropriate here too) :)
