Wonderful! I like the stardust and the dusting all 'round. Great texture in her hair, plus a splendid expression. Have a great Christmas!

It is indeed magical to see her glow and how she carries the good news in her hands. The star symbolices the new and the nice, there is always hope for miracles.

Happy Merry Holidays!

aynaku said...

hi again, I did'nt read your comment about my last illo, i beg your pardon...Off course I agree with you. It's absolutely bad that local, non- dominating cultures are swalloed up by rich and dominating cultures...I experienced it travelling around and I must sadly admit that each of us is involved...ciao

Knitting Painter Woman said...

I missed this earlier... Thanks for the validation on my lined and bizarre "sea" entry... I tend to think that "realistic" is better than interpretive... at least when it comes to MY paintings and art.
Loved the story about you and your DH. Courage and vulnerability can be so confusing.

mer said...

love this illo.... love the way she moves, love her hair, love her expression...and that sparkling glow...oooh, magnificent!

Mike Thompson said...
