Illustration Friday ~ Garden




What a wonderful topic for Illustration Friday ! Everyone I know here in the Northeast is yearning for the sights and smells of their gardens. My little boy said, 'I just want to see some green!' It has been a very long and difficult winter and we look forward to ALL the colors of the GARDEN.

And if you haven't had a chance, please visit my new Etsy shop...hint, hint. (There's nothing like a little self-promotion :)

What a cute little one. I can't wait for winter to be over here in Indiana too.

donna said...

That's the truth!
After vacationing in NH this summer, in all it's lushness, I can see how you are desperate for that to return, hang in there it's almost mid-March, which is when we in Western NY start feeling like, yes, we made it....almost there! Which is why we really appreciate the change when it finally comes :)
I did see my first Robin 2 weeks ago..

Sherry Rogers said...

Oh she is sooo wonderful! I just love the colors and the wings are just perfect! Who wouldn't love to have that angel in your garden.

Monica said...

Oh, Nancy, what a sweet collage, I love your work. The vintage look, the golden wings and stripped socks on your characters add a whole layer of charm and originality. And I agree with your, "Garden" is a lovely topic, especially this time of the year when we long so much for spring to arrive. :-)
