Baby

"Baby" is the theme for ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY (and I can't believe it's Friday) and though these aren't exactly babies I'm sure the little round shapes on the fairy on the right were learned by my observation of our children when they were small. A little one asleep is one of the most beautiful sites on the planet.
Y'all! Have a great weekend! Ignore the advice and preaching of the internet know-it-alls and eat a cinnamon roll or a bowl of ice cream and watch TV! Life is too short!- John

Always a fan of your fairy scenes, this one is particularly special. Great composition and wonderful detail, especially on the leaves :)

Wow, truly gorgeous! There's a whiff of Elsa Beskow about this...and it's a wonderful whiff may I hasten to assure you!
