Illustration Friday-Leap



In honor of leap year happening on this particular Friday, IF's theme was "leap". All I could think about was little leaping frogs. I added a little inspirational message too! I did it in alkyd oils this afternoon, but had to wait for it to dry. I will be selling it in my etsy shop tomorrow.
Let me know what you think!

I think the colors in the picture are more accurate. My scanner tends to oversaturate blues especially. Though the photo was taken with too much sunlight, so it's dull...can't win!

What a fun piece! I love the colors and background and the frog is definitely leaping off the page. There's just something endearing about frogs.
