Illustration Friday "wilderness" and a painting a day - vintage memories

Tribute

Hi Everyone....It's Friday already...wow...time sure does fly when you're having fun.... I did a quick piece for IF this week...the theme is "Wilderness" and I love going to the forest and seeing some cute wild animals...even though these guys look very cute and not wild at all..I thought they would get my love of the outdoors across....

I also added a tribute piece I did a while back for Beatrix Potter....she was an amazing lady...Helen Beatrix Potter (28 July 1866 – 22 December 1943) was an English author, illustrator, mycologist and conservationist best known for children's books featuring anthropomorphic characters such as in The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

I am also happy to report that I am on track with this project...." A painting a day 2010" is going full steam ahead....I also think that this vintage camera saw some pretty cool things in it's prime.....and of course it also fits the "wilderness" prompt...because I always take my camera on all my wild journeys.....

Wishing you a wonderful Friday filled with inspiration and creativity!!!


Hugs

Diana
