This was last week's prompt, but mostly intended for the scbwi contest (due tomorrow). It was so hard to get the colors right. I feel pretty good about the way it turned out but, as often happens, the colors aren't nearly as vibrant on the computer as they are on paper. I keep looking at it and liking a lot, but also seeing all of the mistakes. It's harder, I think, when I know that I'm sending this in to be judged, something that I want to show as my very best, and yet I don't feel that satisfaction that it was. Sigh. But I'm glad for the experience and opportunity. Just coming up with the idea was a struggle in itself.
