Sail Into Starry Skies



Here's my entry for Illustration Friday and 4 X 4 Friday this week. I painted this this mixed media piece last year using acrylic, watercolor, and collage elements. The sandman was handrawn with Prismacolor pencils, and I later made 4 X 4 prints to use as graduation cards for the young men in my homeroom class. (For the girls I painted individual portraits which you can see on my April 22-27 posts, if you'd like to.)

I've been adoring your blue collages that followed your yellow collages, and now THIS! Sandman is magnificent in his moonshaped hat and nose. How utterly clever! And I LOVE that you've made the moon into a giant clock. You sound like the kind of teacher I would have loved -- one who cares about each and every student.

And happy anniversary! Your Belize girl and the photos are dazzling!
