Jess, this illustration must be of you, holding a tiny bird! ;-)

I love your use of colour with the washes of sunshine yellow.
Your painting made me smile... It is a lovely sunny illustration for a grey Friday!

Have a great weekend!

Silke said...

Oh, I love this!! The colors and the expression on her face, that little bird, the watercolor wash in the background. Just gorgeous!! Hugs, Silke

Oh my gosh!!! This is so beautiful!!! I was struck with pure delight and calm at the same time, as if something told me, all is well with the world. This is so beautiful. I really love this. How did you do this? Is this watercolor?

Thank you for making me smile this morning. Hehehehe. The word jug on the title may actually sound very enticing. Heheheh!

Tsup!

She's so soft in her contemplative expression. Just beautiful! I love everything about this painting - the colors, the birdie and the tiny little heart stamens in the lily... And your new banner is fabulous! LOVE!

Thankyou ♥
The painting is in acrylics and I sprayed it with a water spray to make the paint look like watercolour :)
