Illustration Friday - Theme "Choose"


We can choose...
We can choose to see the positive or choose the negative
We can keep our eyes open or turn a blinds eye...
We can choose to work hard like the busy bees or choose to slack off..
We can choose to live life to the fullest ...
We can choose to appreciate the people and things around us...
We can choose to see that the glass is half full ...
We can choose freedom
The bottom line is we can CHOOSE....
Have a wonderful weekend...
Cheers,
Diana

Diana, you've absolutely outdone yourself here (and this is so true). Cheers to you and HAPPY weekend!

half empty.. half full... very true. we all have freedom to choose and discern...but then again like rights dian one's freedom ends when another right to exercise to stop that freedom begins...

nice art work... the 2 sides... the pesismism and the optimism... the dull and the colorful... the right and the wrong

hugs from liberty
have a happy weekend

Nice piece! Looks like lots of work.

Yes, it's important to remember when we can choose. Easy to say, not always easy to do.

Digital Scott's illustrationblog said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I think you should take pic of you getting a manicure and I'll draw it. Seriously. Frankly, I don't think my big mitts would look good in bright red nail polish. But maybe some other color... :)

My email: scott at scottcuzzo.com

Send a nice, clear, high resolution pic.

carla said...

Your words are so inspiring, and the illustration is beautiful. It has a wonderful psychedelic vibe with all the colors on the right side. Excellent work!

Stick said...

What a great piece! I especially like the fish on a hook vs. swimming freely. p.s. I'll be checking your other site as well. I like your personalized works.

laurel said...

Love this illustration and the thoughts that go with it. I remember when I was in my 20's struggling with life and realizing that even though we don't have control over everything we do have control over how we choose to react. Thank you for sharing!
