Illustration Friday - Wide
"She Needs Wide Open Spaces." My entry for this week's IF - Wide. I know the feeling of that need.
I was so sick of slacking on Illustration Friday, that I had to just put up an older drawing. Old is better than nothing at all. When I thought of "Wide," my immediate thoughts were of the Dixie Chicks. This made me remember this drawing from 1992. Back then I had dreams of my own patchwork fields. I don't really have wide open spaces of patchwork, but at least I do have my own bit of land now, no longer throwing money away to rent. And I now get to grow whatever I want, without having to possibly uproot it anytime, to transport to another rental.
Nothing beats owning your own piece of land, even if it's only 1/3 acre, not 33 acres!
This is a colorful drawing done with pentel markers, approx 8x10 inches.
