Paint Party Friday......and Illustration Friday - soaked

backyard fun2

We have had rain here for days now...and I thought I would look at the bright side of things and be thankful that I don't have to water anything....so I was sitting in the Studio thinking of something to create and this sweet watering girl popped into my head....so this is my piece for PPF today.....and I just looked at the prompt for IF this week and it is "soaked" so I must have psychic powers.....lol
 
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!!

You can find these fun prints added to my Etsy Shop......
Happy Creating!!!! and for another fun challenge join us here every Saturday for "Sweet Saturdays" where you can share something sweet on your blog and add a link here.....

She is great Diana. Yes the rain has been falling lately and no need to water. She looks pretty happy watering. I like her. Happy PPF and great job!

She's so cute Diana! I love her flip flops! Makes me want to go outside and water, which I love doing. Happy PPF! :-)

Bonjour ma très chère Diana,
En France nous souffrons réellement de la sécheresse... Ta charmante petite aux mille couleurs serait la bienvenue dans mon jardin!
J'adore les détails apportés, ses petites tongues et une robe comme j'aimerais bien porter... Ton dessin est tout simplement adorable et rempli de fraîcheur... Bravo my sweet amie.
Gros bisous...

Diana she is lovely! We are stuck in rain too all week. Looking forward to all of us getting the sunshine back! :)

Cute drawing! You are right, no watering for now. Glad the rain has finally stopped and the sun is shining! :-)

NatashaMay said...

Well, I wish this lady came to my garden cause there is not enough rain in this part so we have to water our garden. :) Beautiful illustration as always, Diane. :)

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

She is GREAT fun! And I'll send you some sun in exchange for some of your rain- we've been having to water almost daily here in Georgia!
Happy PPF,
Stephanie

I always enjoy your work, and thanks for reminding me of Sweet Saturdays. I'll try to post something for it.

Pam Tucker said...

What a happy piece! It makes the soaking not such a bad thing. ;) Love the bright colors!

Magpie said...

She is having fun in the garden! And so pretty with her colorful clothes and flip flops. I like the patterns you have used in the background and the way they contrast with the illustration.

And, I guess that's the bright side of all the rain...no watering.

Lynette said...

What a lovely interpretation of soaked!

EVA said...

What a great Spring/Summer image! Wonder if she's going to wash the car or water the garden or have a water fight? Love the colours too.

SHERI C said...

Terri Kahrs said...

There's been no need for a watering can or hose in our neighborhood, Diana! Mother Nature must like it because it's been day after day of rain! Your sweet little gardener is delightful! Happy, Happy Weekend!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Terrie said...

Fun and whimsical but so evocative of those warm summer days. We probably won't see a warm enough day til August in the NW, but I can live vicariously. Really fun!

Tea Doodle said...

Love the sweet watering girl. We've had rain here for days also.

Kristin Dudish said...

Perfect timing! Such fun colors and patterns - I love the playfulness of it!
