Illustration Friday: Perennial


Every year I try for this same subject - someone (or some animal) lying in a field of flowers.  And guess what: I'm never happy with the outcome.  It never matches the image I had in my head..until now.  Finally something came together and worked!  For me, when I look at it, I can hear all the insects buzzing and feel a lazy summer breeze drifting across the flowers.  This is a personal triumph for me. :)
