Flower Girls Project: No. 2 of 11

Liana and Julia tried hard to fly.

Whew! I'd better work a little faster on this series, or it will never get done on time.

OMG that's so adorable!!!!! You're amazing, Bella!

Björnik said...

OMG! Just looking at it from my dashboard makes me wanna jump into it headlong and land on these lovely little girls feet! You've captured it again Bella! I can't wait for the remaining 10!:)

Björnik said...

Ok remaining 9, I'm an architect and it's a shame if I don't know how to subtract.hehe help us here, we need more wind! *blows*

Ces said...

Ahhhhhhhhha! This is so beautiful! I want to be that teacher who will receive this book!!!!!!!! I love this one. The orchid is so real. You can start a botanical series.

By the way I forgot to tell you that the euphimism about the pencil forest being a stretch is quite clever and wicked.

Everyday I as I continue to lok and examine I notice the features of your drawing. Your characters' feet are so cute. I feel like biting them.

Ces said...

I gather from the girls, this is an international school?

Vera said...

great illustration! You´re really good!

Bella Sinclair said...

Hey, Milkberry! Goooolden Spoooooon. I'm obsessed. Must go. Thanks again!

Thank you so much, Vera. Glad to see you again.

Bella Sinclair said...

Ces, Bjornik:

Ok, guys. What is it with you and feet? One of you wants to land on them, the other wants to bite them. Honestly! Next time, I'm putting steel-toed boots on 'em.

Ces, yes, it's an international school, with girls coming from all over.

And Bjornik, let me know which buildings you helped design and I'll make a note never to stand in them.... ;)

Caroline said...

Ah - super adorable! Now I know why you needed the orchid pics!! This is going to be such a wonderful collection! Hurry up with more - can't wait to see!

Valerie said...

oh bella, another beauty! hey i think you can do more than give this series to the teacher. how about starting a postcard series? these will make lovely cards to girlfriends...

Patricia said...

You make beautiful illustrations!!

messyfish said...

this is too much! I love orchids and all things cute.

Ces said...

All I said was to bite them the way I nibbled on my children's feet when they were newborns. Bjornik has issues. I would be wary about a man who wants to land on women's feet. That will remind me not to wear open toed sandals when I meet him someday.

Ces said...

I can't wait for the next flower! I want a little Ces climbing a big tree, not part of the series of course but may I please please be YOUNG again and have cute feet like those. I have big feet now!

Indigene said...

Bella, I love these girls! They make me laugh and happy at the same time! I'm loving the patterns, too! Your name fits the work!

Bella Sinclair said...

Hi, Caroline. Your pics were a great help. Thank you!

Valerie, thank you! Something to keep in mind. :)

Thank you, Patricia!

Oh, Messyfish. Why won't my orchids rebloom? I love them, but I don't think they like me.

Ces!
Can't...breathe...
laughing...
too...hard!
Aaah, a wish for small feet. They seem to come at a price, though. Notice: small extremities. Gigantic noggin. It's a wonder they can even stand.

Bella Sinclair said...

Ooh! Hi, Indigene! Didn't see you sneak in right in front of me. Thank you so much. Happy is good. :)

Owl Eng said...

voz said...

I have nothing more intelligent to say than CUUUUUUUTE!

Well, actually I also love that orchid. Lovely.

Francisco Martins said...

caren said...

Incredible! Every cute little detail is amazing! I agree with Valerie...I think they would be adorable cards.

Ces said...

The shape of their mouths are so adorable! Yes! Postcards or Greeting cards! Ooh I like that you counter my morbid abecedarian illustrations with these wholesome, lovely, adorable, bright and gay illustrations!

I am using the word "gay" before it became controversial as in Renee's post.

yoon see said...

Well done Bella.
The 2nd one is even more beautiful.
Love your creativeness as always:)
Until the 3rd....
Bye!
Btway, don't rush, take your time.
I am sure you also busy with your family too!
Bella, you don't have to come over, I have been missing in action since Cactus Monday.
Very busy lately, seldom update...
I want to thank you for your continual support. The comments you gave are equally important to me.
Thanks Bella and have a great weekend ahead:)

laughingwolf said...

linda cardina said...

Dusik said...

aimee said...

oh man! this one is just too cute - i want to jump in this picture and play, too - may i please???

p.s. the WV is logranic. sounds like a blend of logarithmic and organic.

Renee said...

You will laugh that I posted your comment on my blog because it was about you loving me and you know my ego.

You are lovely Bella.

Love Renee

esque said...

The cuteness continues! I'm really enamored with the little faces and the background! Love!

Ces said...

Where you be? The epsilons at school done ya in?

Ces said...

You are a ray of sunshine!

Draffin Bears said...

Too cute! Just love these two huggable little girls.

I love the little girl with fans and it looks like she may be singing,
by the look of her mouth - is she?

Have a great weekend
Hugs
Carolyn

kj said...

for some reason i like the shadow and rocks best in this illustration. and again you have a way of making it so easier for us grown-ups to stroll right into the playfulness of life!

bella, when you have the chance, please stop by my blog and scroll down a few posts--there is an award waiting for you.

BT said...

Oh these are so adorable. Such cute figures and lovely feet. I'm a real 'fan'. Sorry!!

Shugar said...

oh this is so pretty! the little girls are so cute! well done, i think the whole series will be looking fabulous!

Bella Sinclair said...

Oh my, thank you so much for your continued encouragement on this. You guys are all so awesome and more than I deserve.

Oh, Linda. A cartoon? It would have to be a touch irreverent and would therefore be rejected by Nickjr and end up on Cartoon Network. Ya?

Carolyn, well, I guess she could be singing. Oooooooooo. Actually, I envisioned her blowing. After consuming a nice breath mint.

BT, hi again! At least you didn't say, "Blow me away." :)

Ces said...

You blow me away! I am out of here. See you in Alabama or maybe Nagoya!

Bella Sinclair said...

Woooooooosh, baby!

Kaili (Billy and Button) said...

Aww, thanks love! Follow the urge, snip snip! Gorgeous illustration Bella!

Renee said...

So fantastic Bella.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Love Renee

Diana Evans said...

oh wow!!! I love love love this piece...this is so cute....Adorable Bella!!!!

ArtSparker said...

Lovely and lively - I like your post-modern fairies.

ValGalArt said...

very beautiful!

Renee said...

If you could see the huge smile on my face, you would laugh your head off.

Oh yes, I remember well the things that go bump in the night.

xoxoxox

Love you. Seriously Bella, I really do. You and your family are going to have the very best life.

xoxoxo

Well, you've got 46 people who like this, so hmmmm... I think it's crap. You really need to work on your craft. He he, thought I'd mix it up a bit.

Ces said...

Overcast, rain, cold, stuffed, sleepy, drawing quaking aspens, I remember a lady from Japan commenting on my ginkgo biloba drawing. I had the impression that she was an expat living in the orient, she was so genteel and I feel a little bit intimidated and cautious. She created wonderful drawings, she still does, except now she makes me smile so much and she is a great source of inspiration and happiness!

I hate laptops and touch pads! See - I deleted the wrong comment which was the right comment last night and the wrong comment tonight, because it is a duplicate was not deleted because I scrolled on the wrong trash can icon. I'll go back to drawing, no touch pad just pen and paper.

Dot said...

love these! they are just adorable. oh, and I love the drawing you did for last week's IF too.

Nicky Linzey said...

My goodness, you've taken on a task - you're doing it beautifully.
