Illustration Friday topic: Summer. I envisioned this. Couldn’t even resist.
This week has been a whirlwind of learning to crawl and stand, playing, eating a cornucopia of foods pureed and bite size, waking up every two hours in the middle of night to eat and play, and so on… Instead of painting during the day, while baby girl naps (yeah, when is that happening anymore), I’m either cleaning up or napping with her. So, anyway, without further ado, today is Thursday and the painting for today is actually for Illustration Friday! The topic, announced last Friday, where you have a week to create an illustration, is Temptation.
I found this little beauty on Facebook, so Facebook strikes again in inspiring me to paint. It looks like one of my FB connections is on vacation in British Columbia, window-shopping perhaps, and took a photo of all these shoes that are so adorable. I may just paint more of these because I’m feelin’ like Andy Warhol!
Every Friday is Illustration Friday, a little idea that began in 2003 and became pretty big not long after that. It is a community artist/illustrator blog started by super duper freelance illustrator, Penelope Dullaghan and she is now teamed up with some fantastic, fellow freelance illustrators who make it run today. Go there to check out the art and talk to other artists! Share your masterpieces! The team at Illustration Friday often feature and interview world class illustrators and it’s just a great site to learn all kinds of amazing things about the illustration world.
This week’s topic is “Universe” and is my painting for today. Since it’s an illustration it has turned out to be a touch different from my oil paintings I’ve been showing. In the future, I’d like to continue participating in IF and have my pieces go along more with my oil paintings.
