Illustration Friday - "Instinct"


Hi Everyone...

Meet Ava....her natural instinct was to always be the "Hostess with the Mostess"

She would always wear a smile and serve up some yummy cupcakes to all her friends....

Watch out Martha!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!

hugs
Diana

Diana - What a fun illustration! Thanks for visiting my blog...Your cake sculpture is so cool! The model homes around here always have fake fruits and things in the kitchens. Have you ever thought about approaching some of them with your works?
