Oh Karen! That's wonderful, th stocking and the sweater are really soft - great pattern on the stockings. And you've done an amazing job on the ground and the trees - very delicate, soft but also realistic - it's good stuff :)
Hello, I love your pictures !!!Have a nice day!Rosine
Thank you for the very kind comment Andrew!Thank you too Rosine ;)
YAYYYY! YAY for Presidents! And YAY for headache-be-gone!!! Wow, Karen, what a fantastic background. That is beautiful mist out in the meadow. I'm fascinated as to where she's headed with those balloons. A teddy bear picnic, perhaps? :) You did a terrific job of matching the weather to her wardrobe. Hope you have a productive and massively fun weekend!
OOOH my goodness how sweet and wonderful is this. I just love the whole air about the piece. It's beautiful. Great work. I am so glad that you got time to do you. This is great! It tells such a story. Great work.Hugs to you Mama!V
Yay!! Karen..this is GORGEOUS! I agree with Andrew...love, love the ground and trees. You've captured such a wonderful scene and the character just pops!! I love it. Wonderful work and I'm so glad you don't have a headache anymore and that you finished this. Go with it, girl..it's awesome!
Wow Karen! You really know how to portray a mood! The background and soft textures are amazing! Love the contrast to the shiny balloons! Great work. Yay! For the presidents and their days!!!
AWWWWW, ya'll are so sweet! Thanks bunches!
Aaaawww! We have Monday as Weather-Make-Up day because of that silly snow coming to Texas! Argh! Not that it would affect me. My company does not celebrate it. We only have six holidays, but I am not complaining. It's just nice to lounge around in pajamas. Ah. As for this young woman heading towards the mist with colorful balloons, I love her boots! She is stylin'!!!
verrrrry nice, karen! love the balloons, her boots and thanks so much for the visit! "-))
thank you Ces and Colleen :)
Beautiful - I love the startling orange against the other more muted colors - kind of describes childhood for me in a weird way... sorry, I'm not very articulate about this stuff, but I love looking anyway!
oh thank you so much Ohio girl. I'm so happy that you like it.
nice mood with the atmospheric perspective
And Yay to you for finishing the lovely balloon girl! (^_^)I really like the misty, hazy background, Karen! Reminds me of fresh early mornings in England. :) oxx
