Illustration Friday—Racing

October 22, 2010

This week’s theme: “Racing.” Though this watercolor is titled “Fly! Fly Away Home!” in honor of the butterflies’ and African animals’ annual migration home, I think it works for “racing,” for these critters, often times, are “racing” back to their roots.

    This reminds me of The Peaceful Kingdom where the lion and lamb lay down together. Very well done. The sentiment expressed is beautiful!
