Sunday Postcard Art: Strong Women

I've been taking a little bit of a break, I guess. But this theme sounded interesting, and it's something new.

Take a Word: Hot Colors

Even though the skies here in Maryland have been quite gray lately, summer is usually a season of intensely bright colors: flowers, butterflies, ripe fruit, oceans, pools, fireworks. Here is my tribute to those colors.

Three Muses: Apples

I believe this is the first time I've ever been challenged to create art with an apple theme! It sounded like fun. Some curious birds insistrd on flying into the picture, so I had to include them. They look like they're eyeing the apples on that poor lady's head. Image credits: harper designs, rubyblossom.
