All my might for what I love....



Sometimes,
illustrating just for the love of it
is getting harder each day....
with so many things to attend to
in many areas...
but
no matter how tired
or unhappy I am
when I get to illustrate...
I'll wake up the next day
feeling lighter and with a renewed hope.....
and the past 2 weeks have been quite taxing for me....
so,
with all my might....
with some 'stolen' free time,
I illustrated the above......
and after sharing this piece...
I know I'll be able to work better tomorrow...

It is lovely your illustration, I love the contrast with her face and the darkness at the bottom of the image, like a filigree. I hope you feel better today, and get some more energy to keep illustrating. Good luck.

A lovely meloncholy face. Your words are reflected in her eyes I think, and the color choices. Beautiful!

Oh how beautiful, Constance! What a wistful, gently haunting face. She's lovely, and you illustrated what I felt a few days ago far better than I could. And your dog is SO adorable!
