Illustration Friday - Bicycle

This week's Illustration Friday word prompt is bicycle.  My boys LOVE their bikes!!  They can't wait for that first sign of spring so they can get out their bikes!  They create an "off-road" course around our yard, they make jumps and have races!  I'm sure once their little sister is old enough to pedal a "big girl" bike she'll be right with them...for tons and tons of backyard fun!

Illustration Friday - Bottled

My little 3 year old daughter LOVES mermaids!  In fact she says all of the time, "When I grow up, I am going to be a mermaid!"  So this here is for her...maybe if she cannot become one when she grows up,  perhaps one day, while the sun is setting and her parents are packing up all of the beach belongings, she'll run back to the water for one last try at catching "something".  She'll dunk her bottle in and come up with a teeny, tiny...mermaid!

This is my second go at IF's theme "bottled".  Have you ever put something on your blog, art or otherwise, and realize you shouldn't have?  I had another illustration on here- something I had done in an art class - because I didn't think I'd have time to paint this week.  And it just ate at me for the last day or so.  It just wasn't "me".  So, this little sketch of the above scene kept calling to, needless to say...I found time to paint it!  And...I am so glad I did...I really like how it came out!
