Illustration Friday: artificial


My submission for Illustration Friday's "artificial" theme is a facade called Home Front. This is a tough word for a homemaker :) I thought of a house in Florida with all the pink flamingos out in front but this has been done a million times or maybe an artificially sweetened Gingerbread House but I posted the real sweet kind before ;) I decided on this idea, as you can see; I finished down to the wire because I am working on other stuff but the idea is reminiscent of the old saloon type buildings propped up in the back.

there are NO artificial sweeteners here Ms. ValGal, just the real deal!

Do you even have a clue how clever you are?

;)

I hope you're having a wonderful summer and I also hope the fires are nowhere near you.

Hello "mad Homemaker". Love the facade! I don't know how I missed this, but I'm glad I stopped by to see what you were up to. Great colors! purple and blue are so "cool" together. Love the title of your work too. HomeFront.... perfect!!!
