Illustration Friday: expired


The lease on this Pear Pad has never expired. Why? Because it's purrfect ;)

My submission for Illustration Friday's "expired" theme is a painting on Stonehenge paper for the King of Maybe and my friend, Fernando Pereira.

Aaaaaaahhhh!!! What a delightful image for a rather surly topic. Hi Val! How are you doing? I am on my way home. It was great getting in touch with you!!! Love, Ces

Hey Val! I love your "happy" take on the negative topic. You really nailed it! This pear is absolutely perfect and what a personality. I zoomed in a couple times to see what was in the doorway. A kitty on a chair! Wow! what detail. God must have certainly blessed you with patience! Great work Val... as usual. :o)

Lovely, whimsical, purrrfect and these two make such a wonderful PEAR. The tone and colors are just what you would expect to find in a magical garden with a mystical pear tree.

Caroline said...

The colours are magical, Val! Love the pears - you are so clever, I'm stumped with this one - again! Third week running that I've got a creative block for IF!
