Illustration Friday

Here's my illustration for Illustration Friday. The topic this week is "summer". Sorry for the slightly blurry picture. I did this piece several years ago (and this is the only photo I have). If this lady looks familiar, it's because she's a take-off on Botticelli's Venus, with a spotted bathing suit and flippers, however.

congratulations on your first post on IF!!...there's just too much to learn and take part in for us crafty ladies, right...!? =)

my husband was just complaining last night that my hobbies keep expanding and so little time is left for him =P

Yes, Candlelight, I agree...too much to get involved in. I have to make myself take breaks now & then (and my boyfriend is always telling me to do less, too!- I think sometimes he wants more attention :0)

Hello from a fellow Mainer! (Alas, I'm not on the coast -- boo hoo.) This is a great image: nice aquatic coloring and mood.

It's nice to meet everyone. making connections with other creative people is so helpful to my own creative process.
