My daughter will love this when I show her tomorrow. She is 3 and thinks Thumbelina is wonderful, and Tom Thumb. She especially loves flowers too so this picture will tick all her boxes. I like it too :)

I love the shape he's curled up in, a perfect gentle little cup! He looks so sweet. I haven't got round to doing my IF yet, I'd thought about a flower unfurling but yours is so lovely I'm going to do something completely different! It's gorgeous Kathy. :o)

The little boys' clothes (folds) are so wonderfully done..they capture a "pajama-like" feel to it and he looks as if he's awaking. Wonderful illustration!

What a delightfully gentle illustration... I like the mildest touch of pink on his cheeks... gives the impression that the colors are about to wake and burst into bloom!

Bella Sinclair said...

Oh, Kathy. Your drawings send my heart a-flutter. You work absolute magic with your coloured pencils, honestly. I love your new header and all the colors you put into the grass. I love the softness you put into fur and the textures you add to...well, everything. Amazing. I had such a great time catching up with your art. Jaw-dropping good.

I wanted to thank you for the thoughtful and kind message you left for me earlier this summer. Thank you for the prayers and support. I could feel the warmth and appreciated the solace and strength in your words. Thank you for your friendship.

xoxo
