December has been a busy month (what with commissioned artwork that needed to get done before Christmas, and an absurd amount of obligatory Christmas cookie baking), hence the slowdown of postings around here. Nevertheless, I did manage to make some time to do an illustration for Illustration Friday. This week’s theme is “Spirit”, so I’ve created for you a visual representation of my inner spirit.
You better not laugh! I was quite afraid of revealing my “inner spirit” to you, and nearly backed out, but here she is:
This is how I feel when I am out in nature, particularly when I’m out at my grandma’s farm in Minnesota (I won’t ramble on about Grandma, but let me just tell you that she is the BEST!). I breathe in the fresh air and feel my spirit buoyed up by the amazing realization that I (yes, puny little me!) get to be a small part of the huge and glorious expanse of sky and earth that surround me. I feel radiant and free, whole and at peace.
But no, my hair isn’t really that long. Yet.
Stay tuned for later postings of some of the commissioned paintings I made this month!
