Fireflies and Mixed Media

Added on by ellapointe.

A couple weeks ago I bought a nice mix of hand printed Japanese papers for my collage needs… This morning I was drawn to play a bit with some of the nice deep greens and patterns that were in there, also had a couple of mixed blue inks that needed using… Here's the result:

Illustration Friday: 'Energy'

Added on by ellapointe.

This week's challenge was: "Energy". I had a few ideas mostly involving children or pets and their seemingly unlimited energy in contrast with the adults in their lives... Upon further consideration however,  I felt inspired to take it in a different direction and focus on a more inward, subtle kind of energy. I thought of the invisible and inexplicable, yet very real,  healing effect of a mother's kiss. This poor little boy fell off his bike and is rather upset but don't worry! soon he will feel much better.
