Illustration Friday: poof !


It seemed like an average day when suddenly a whirring noise occurred and poof! a flower shaped contraption flew into view. It was perfect for a ladybug picnic :)

My submission for Illustration Friday's "poof" theme is Liquitex Acrylics on Stonehenge paper.

Your image is, indeed, totally magical; I love 'being a kid again' when I visit your site. Now I'm going to go demand my husband buy a CD of Canned Heat! Can you get one!?

Connie said...

Thanks for the tip! More thanks to you on my site. Have a great weekend!

Kate said...

I feel like i have just toured a candy store, visiting your blog today. : )

Love the whimsical house and the fun music you chose, and then the fim about the lifecycle of the ladybug. What a well-thought-out post.

I am sorry to hear that you lost your buddy Rat. That makes me feel very sad for you. Dogs are the best!

Sorry about your car accident, too. Boy, we have both had an eventul summer to say the least! Synchronicity...

Have a nice weekend and be good to yourself.

What a lovely tent, with daisy doors and a propeller seed lift.
I'm going to image this place and go and take a nap here with lavender sheets and listen to the "Ladybug Picnic" song!
Those ladybugs are so lucky...

Truly enjoyed the video, your blog is always a treat to visit :) :) :)

I love this picture and I REALLY LOVE the one you sent me this week. Everything about it is so cool! I love the elephant and the frame is amazing as well. I can't wait to show it to all of my friends.

A ladybug picnic! How fun. I love this happy floating leaf. I can imagine tons of them flying around my backyard and it makes me smile.

Another clever and gorgeous painting from Valerie!

erin said...

aawww, so cute, unfortunately my cat's idea of a ladybug picnic is a little different - not as cute - she's not invited to the next one!

Vickie said...

It's such a soft, safe place. I love the colors and the detail.

Josh (musarter) said...

This is a really awesome illustration. The color and detail are great. It is so inviting; it makes me wish I was a ladybug so I could picnic there too.

Bearded Lady said...

what a great idea. I will never look at a Ladybug on a leaf the same way again.

Mônica said...

So delicate and creative, a perfect place for a sweet Ladybug to have a picnic. Lovely colors and textures too, full of magic and wonder!

michelle said...

How lovely, a perfect place for a home!

Bron Smith said...

What a charming piece, Val. I love the soft cheery colors. I can't remember if you do this all in airbrush, or Photoshop. It looks like traditional airbrush. Hope you're having a fun summer.
