From Above, Alone

I was finishing up From Above, Alone for a personal art project when Illustration Friday’s topic for the week, Lonely, showed up in my email. I don’t submit often to IF because I’m usually too busy working on something else, but this seemed like a serendipitous perfect fit. Watercolor, ink and graphite on hot press paper.

From Above, Alone is a companion piece, albeit a sad one, to From Above, a painting I created in 2009.

It’s Christmas, dear.

It’s no great revelation that the holidays are more fun for some than others. But some buck up and participate anyway with a sporting, if slightly begrudging, attitude.

My holiday offering for 2011. May the spirit move you. Or spirits.
