Detach

"Detach" is the word for ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY and I can think of no more fitting subject!
I hope you have a great weekend and a wonderful week! John

A.W.E.S.O.M.E! I used to live near Sleepy Hollow, NY, so this story is near and dear to me. That's an excellent idea to put him on a rocking horse!

ha ha wonderful image, love the rocking horse, that's probably the reason that his head came off!

I used to associate rocking horse with Christmas (not sure why). But, this grinning headless rocking horseman takes off that sole spot. Love the effortless, soft colors.
