Stripes - Illustration Friday

canon ball

This series was my first ever sale, so it holds a very special place in my heart. 

I remember the time so clearly, it was when my second baby cried day and night and I was frazzled and in tears myself most days. 

I needed a boost, a little light, a gift from above. So on a whim I checked my etsy sight which I haven't visited in months. And there I found an email from Warner Brothers, wanting to use these paintings on an upcoming TV series. I couldn't believe it! My little paintings I created at my kitchen table - on TV! 

So when I saw the theme was stripes this week on illustration Friday, all I could think of was my stripey divers, my first and most exciting sale yet - thanks to God!

So it really was a canonball! What did you paint it on?

Yes you are absolutely right, a huge Canon Ball :D
I painted then on reclaimed wood I rescued from an old door we found under our house. Wonderful surface to work with.

Wow, that's awesome! Did they tell you what show so you could watch for them on TV?!?
