Play and Shop

When I got the Illustration Friday prompt play an hour ago in my inbox I skipped on down to the painting room and had some fun. Which was good for me today, because last night dear Chloe had a friend over and I was not feeling quite so happy around 3 a.m. Little girls like to PLAY. My take on the prompt play was skipping rope.
When no one would play with you on the play ground, you could always skip rope. My preoccupation in elementary school (besides drawing constantly) was flying and skipping rope. I guess the prompt brought me to a playful place where the two could come together with my recent red bird drawings. These are all going to be for sale as originals and they are in the process of becoming note cards too, in our new little shop. Stay tuned!
Thank you Penelope for helping me be less grumpy this morning! (yes, those little girls are still sleeping...)
The word for the day is obvious. Go PLAY! It is Friday after all ...
