Illustration Friday: Stripes

Life is like stripes

but none of them are the same.

The page started like this,words poured out onto the page, words for my eyes only. ;o)

The painting grew from this underlying layer, it might even continue to grow.
I'll keep you posted. :)

Really neat. It has a floating, ethereal quality. And I always love green and blue together. I love the two styles of vines. Really great overall. I hope she's not too sad (or that it doesn't last too long). :)

Thankyou Cindy, I wanted to keep a light feeling to it so that the layer underneath could speak too! :)
Thankyou Victoria, that's a lovely idea of the painting conjuring up a scent, I shall remember that each time I look at it. :)

How very true - I love the wavy stripes, the subtle colours - indeed life is a big mystery
