Illustration Friay - Fleeting

{ Watercolor, 2009}
I finally finished my Illustration Friday entry for "Fleeting". I had the drawing completed and had been thinking about it all week! I just wanted to start painting it, but had some more pressing work to finish. I have to say, I can not wait to get a better scanner. The richness and subtlety of the colors just doesn't come through, even if I tweak it in Photoshop. When I have to have things perfectly accurate, I always have to go to the local print shop to have a nice scan made... maybe a portion of the tax return should go to a new printer/scanner/copier... hmmmm... hopefully!

great piece and it certainly is fleeting. I was looking at baby pictures of my kids yesterday and was just amazed at how fast time goes.
