17-Jun-2013 from Valerie Anne Kelly

name of work: Dreaming of Paradise. Drawn as a pencil sketch 17-Jun-2013, filled in with colored pencils and oil crayons. applied textures in ipiccy. Idea taken from magazine ad for Hawaiian Tropic Suntan lotion, but added the sunburst in the back and my colors are bright whereas the ad was pastel and soft.

Dedicated to all those (like me) who dream of taking a vacation in paradise, but probably never will do to lack of funds…. This also represents the dream and hope we cling to, that helps us get through the daily routine and challenges we face each day, to keep plodding along. I am so thankful for hope and dreams!!!
