Farm Fresh


Well.. this is a farm alright but it is not very "fresh"..

You see, this is part of an older illustration I did a long time ago. At that time I was experimenting with finding my style. I do remember working very hard trying to find something I could call my own but I had such a great time doing it.

Now when I look at it, I see many errors and things I don't like about it, but I also see it with loving eyes as it is a great reminder to always keep going forward and to always... always.. enjoy the ride! :o)

Thank you Kathy! My daughter saw it next to the scanner the day I posted it and started counting all the animals and trying to see if there were any bunnies. Then she said if I could give it to her, she wanted to put it up on her room. Kids surprise us all the time, she made my day just then :o)

Awww, Ali, it's fun going down memory lane with you. This is super sweet and I can see why your daughter would want it for herself. What a busy and fun picture for kiddos to get lost in.
