Hey, nice work on the girl's mood! Thanks for your comments, I will be looking for a book publisher interested I what I'm doing, although I still don't know where to start, as I have not much previous experience.

You have just cheered an otherwise gray and rainy day with this piece. I can almost picture myself along with this lovely in Hawaii...okay, minus the grass skirt and bikini top. I'll leave those for her because she wears them so well.

I liked that 'stitching,' too. When I clicked on the pic for a closer look, it took me to a different illustration (down the beach, where the kids are playing).

Wonderful piece!

I see I am not alone in liking how you rendered the sun! I think it's because the sun is a bit elusive to the pen in its brightness... beautifully done Diana!
