I used to participate in Illustration Friday occasionally, but I kinda forgot that it existed for the last couple years.
I'm so glad my friend Kim brought it up and suggested we participate this week. This cleared up a little creative constipation I had earlier today.
The topic was "book", which could potentially be a really broad topic, as in ' anything that was ever written about in a book', but I kept it simple by doing a painting with an actual book in it. I'm pleased with the result. It took 2 hours or so.
