Blanket

This picture is for Illustration Friday's theme this week which is "Blanket". It's a good theme! I haven't ever done an image with that in mind... but I think I will. I like the word "blanket" as in a "Blanket of leaves" or a "blanket of snow" or "mist". I like the sound of the word too.
This little picture is only about 5x 7 inches in size and it illustrates a young girl's dream. She is draped in a blanket of long hair!

I hope you have a great week! I hope you have plenty of blankets!
