Thursday

Fly me to the moon..

Have you ever thought what it would be like ... for just one day, to be able to go and visit someone you have loved fiercely, who no longer walks this earth with you?..

'Just One More Day'

Acrylic on canvas... 22 x 28

I was just thinking.....


.. this also fits .. the Illustration Friday prompt for this week.. 'Brave'.. she looks like she's heading off to the sunset pretty bravely to me..

Luv .. H

Your balloon girl is brave indeed, I love the ethereal quality you've produced and the muted colors - I also looked at your studio photos, what a wonderful place to work! Enjoy your weekend, Susan
