ABC's



I know we're now in the middle of fairy-land, but I just wanted to post my art for the prompt "Alphabet Letters". This is a little different take on the prompt and was done with gouache.

This is so lovely and really touched my heart with wonderful memories of playing with these blocks when my daughter was a baby. I still have mine and thinking of ways to use them in a craft project. This is so sweet and beautifully illustrated. Great for babies room.

I really, really love this painting. The creamy gouache looks wonderful and I really like the perspective, how you got light and groves of the blocks just right. Great take on the theme!

What a fun idea! Like Vanessa, I have fond memories of these, mostly as a kid. They were so magical, all of those colors. This illo brings it all back!

I have a great appreciation for your patience. I borrowed blocks to do just my name and BOY. It's been a while since I paid close attention to perspective. Kudos for this piece, it's wonderful.
