Illustration Friday Flying

Today I had another go at some tiny work.
Here is another ACEO this time painted on watercolour paper, for Illustration Friday's theme Flying.

  1. Karen, this is spectacular! I love the pose of the Owl flying down near the bottom and the entire scene.
    Truly wonderful work.

  2. Oh, I love this. For me, it is poignant and beautiful. When I was pregnant, this is very much how I often envisioned my baby was journeying to join us – in a little boat sailing through the stars with animals helping him navigate the way. (Turns out I did have a little boy and he loves his stuffed animals and our two cats. We’ll see about the sailing part)
