Another Illustration Friday is here!  The word this week is "Zoom."  Originally, I thought I would do some fun cars  for Griffin, but once again what I thought I was going to sit down and do is not exactly what happened.  I blame it on having a lot of time to think, and not a lot of time to create.  Tuesday morning is my painting morning, in the small window while Griffin is at pre-school and Holly is napping.  Griffin and I do lots of drawing and painting at other times of the week, but if I'm doing something that I don't want "help" on, this is my window to do it.  Which means I read the word on Friday morning, and do the picture on Tuesday morning.  Usually by then, I've changed my mind.
Case in point.  I started to think about this image of Mother Holle (see "Sky") zipping around with her bunnies pulling her sled through the snow.  And this is what came out:  Zoom.
I actually broke out the acrylic paints for this one, for the first time in a lo-ooo-ong time.  Here's a pic of how it went:
