The thought process on this week's illustration Friday theme, "layer":

Sunday morning I drove somewhere, and the weather was bleak, and totally gorgeous.
I got to see this,
 and this,

and um, yep that is me taking photos with my phone, from my car, while driving. I admit it. But as far as I know in Utah I can only get pulled over for texting and driving so no big deal right? (that is a slightly sarcastic comment, just in case you were wondering)

Anyway, I knew there was an illustration in this bleak gorgeous day, and that it had to be done with watercolors. So I created one. (that's what you see at the top)
Here is a close up of the image.

I apparently am not the first one to use this take on "layer". Last night I saw Abagial Halpin's lovely interpretation of the theme as I was finishing mine up. I guess great minds think similar... or both she and I live in places with snow at the moment, and we have to wear layers to keep warm. It could be either one of those reasons.

Girl's Night Out

Or Illustration Friday- Sweater
Really I have been working on this for a little while (not just this week) but one of those girls is wearing a sweater, so I'm posting it for Illustration Friday. I'm planning on using it for one of my next mailers.  I'd love to hear what you think about it.

Also I'm pondering the thought of opening my own online shop where you can buy some of my prints, or original paintings, maybe cards and the like. Do you think that would go over well? I can't decide.

Oh, and don't forget to check out my little blog story book about a confused but very famous wizard.
