dream your way had it’s beginning as a pencil drawing…at first i sketched a really rough little sketch of someone in a bear outfit…i’d always wanted to draw something like that but never tried, thinking it was perhaps too difficult…however, this just popped out….so i went with it….these are two little adventurers, adventurous warriors, dressed up to the nine’s and doing their own thing, their own way….they are dreaming their way…according to their own hopes and making their way in the world….i think it’s a message I’ve needed to hear and wanted to share it too with you….

watch over me bernard fanning

I’ve photographed the pencil drawing (mechanical pencil on paper) and added some textures from Crackle and Burn as the layers on top…these two take care of each other, the bear is protective of the flower…but she can take care of herself and often takes care of the big bear too, who’s really a big softie

    I love your story about this little pair. The are so cute. I imagine the little one “allowing” bear to take care of her, as she secretly watches out for bear. I relate so many of your pairs of children, with my little sister and myself. The roles sometimes reversed, just as they do in your stories.

    I like the texture on this. It works. Kind of makes it seems like an old photo of the two, stashed away in bureau drawer under other precious belongings and perfumed scarves and things, to pull out on a rainy day and smile over.

  • thank you Frannie, lol…that’s so sweet…i love that you can relate these to your little sister, tis so heartwarming to hear this…i love yours and Janis descriptives…very much! x
