illustration friday: grow

“standing tall” , on canvas

we grow.
we learn.
we reach.
we stumble our way to ourselves until one day
we are finally standing tall.

Sending much love,

    Fantastic colors, textures and patterns. I love how serene she is, and how her height is exaggerated. Lovely piece.

    I think it’s great that you can at least paint the hairdo you’d love, and live it vicariously!!
