Wishful Thinking


The idea for this illustration came to me while standing in line outside the career center. The sun was coming up (told ya the line forms early for free classes), and our long shadows stretched out across the adjacent landscaping.

Love it. Oh it's beautiful. Not just the dress but the crown. She's an amazing princess.

Kelly said...

Wow. That is not only clever, but gorgeous too!

Keats The Sunshine Girl said...

Simply great! A beautiful idea.Hope the princess is the dream come true :)))

Ocean Girl said...

Oh so pretty. This is so creative and wondrous Adrienne.

Rena said...

This is really pretty, Adrienne. I love it.

Write the story for this one, if you haven't already. And then send it out.

In your spare time, of course.

It's magical.

Okay, Adrienne~I'm going to bug you about it again: Are you going to this year's SCBWI summer conference in L.A.? You really need to be there and enter your portfolio in the competition. Your work is *that* good! I really think you have a shot at winning. I know the money's hard to come by, but if there's any familial resource to be tapped, I think it'd be worth it. Anyway, beautiful! Again!!! : )

Love this illustration, Adrienne! Sending good wishes your way!

Jen said...

Adrienne this is beyond amazing. How creative and beautiful! I would love to have this piece and hang it somewhere in my house, that is how beautiful I think this piece is!!!

You're brilliant!

Thanks everyone! I guess this one's a little different...it's probably the state of mind I'm in. :)

ICQB - I like that idea! I think there is a story there - I have other sketches in mind, and I'd love to weave a story around them.

Green Girl - I'm flattered! And, I hadn't thought of it...I'll get back to you! :)

Ara - It's okay, keep bugging me...
It's not likely I'll be attending a conference any time soon, but I've learned things can change awfully fast - so who knows?

Keri Mikulski said...

Love this.. The power of the mind. :)

Sliding on the Edge said...

Oh, yes. I've got a story already brewing in my head from your illustration. The Flower Girl.

Rebecca Ramsey said...

I LOVE that! It's wonderful.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

OMGoodness, it's absolutely lovely. What wonderful details. I'm so jealous of your talents.

Mary Witzl said...

That really is lovely - and a clever idea. What's sweet is that the little girl looks so wistful, longing to be something better than she is, but she's fine just the way she is!

so cute!

Anne Spollen said...

I am SO glad you are still getting ideas while in the stifling "career center" environment.

Yes, you have to write a story for her. She's wonderful.
