Illustration Friday: Sink

My youngest son with his little niece Lexie, before the pantomime.

It's that time of year, pantomines, decorations, christmas trees. 
This week's Illustration Friday is the word 'sink'.
The christmas fairy on top of the tree started to sink....
oh dear!

So true! Although my angel tends to just fall right off :)

Carol said...

Oh no, that can't happen, tell the fairy she just needs to flutter her wings and all will be well.

Purpletreebird said...

Oh Carol, I forgot to give her wings, silly me! ;o)

Thanks Sandra, the bird is from ther Cath Kidson catalogue. I thought it was cute!:)

Thanks so much Victoria! :)

traciness said...

Oh no... that explains why she is sinking.. no wings. Poor fairy - she must be a learner fairy and hasn't ranked up high enough to earn them yet. x

Very nice. Like the colors and especially how you did the progression of sinkage :)

jess, i come here to say something about your words over at my place, and then i totally forget that once i'm here! i'm distracted by your art or photos!!

i don't think this fairy really *needs* wings. she looks quite capable of levitating without them! yes, i think she's impressed the little bird... ; )

May of us can sink down in Christmas - not only the fairies!
I also mention my youngest son on the sink post today!
Merry Christmas ;:OD)

Haha, like it Jessie, x

Indigene Theresa said...

:) Wonderful illustrations, it happens every year to me! :)

Purpletreebird said...

Hi Tracy, you could be right but I've just painted some on now because she looked like she needed some! :)

Thanks Mary, the wonders of Photoshop! ;o)

Thanks 'Vilt og vakkert.'

Thanks Julie, I'm so proud of them all. :)

Thanks Renilde! :o)

Hi Indigene, maybe it's a good place to hide? ;o)

Ah, this is fun and a sweet fairy image!
I don't have a sinking fairy on my tree, but I do have a sinking star, well a bent one. It just won't sit straight! ;-D

Anyway, I just stopped by to wish you and your lovely family a Merry Christmas and very Happy New Year!

Carol said...

Oh that explains it! Just thought they were hiding behind her shoulders. A fairy needs her wings, especially at Christmas, just put mine on the tree.

Purpletreebird said...

Aww thanks Jo, Merry christmas to you too! :o)

Don't worry Carol, she has wings now! I'll post her when she's dry! :)

millefeuilles said...

Oh this is wonderful! Has she eaten too many marzipan fruit? Or almond cakes? She looks pretty slim though!

I love all this colour!!!

Purpletreebird said...

Thankyou Stephanie :) She has and so have I and it's not even christmas yet! I've given her some wings now so her weight won't be a problem any more. ;o)
