Walking on eggshells.

They are eggsperts.

They are a beautiful bunch, aren't they? All dressed in blues, precariously balancing on every egg, hoping not to crack it, being so gentle even though sometimes she probably wants to just trample on them. It must have been a beautiful hair day! What shampoo and conditioner did you use? Heheheh! And sweet Elie behind her, gently following. Every girl walking on egg shells needs a gentle, smart, loving, kind, talented, eggspert eggwalker for a friend. Thank you! I love you. TSUP!!!

P.S. I showed this to The Viking and his first words were: "She (Bella Sinclair) is so good", then "Who is the elephant?" :)

Ces said...

Oh I forgot, I want to bite her arms and legs. They are so chubby cute!!! Yum Yum!!! Another beautiful illustration, Sweetest Bella! TSUP!

of you ~

rachel awes said...

those eggshells
do carry
expert feedback
when we pay attention,
indeed!
i love these two friends
& their ginger walk,
together...
(oh yes,
the elephant
in the room!)..
& i adore your
little/big details,
like the underside
of the elephant's white foot
echoing those eggs.
ALL DEAR. ALL YOUR ART. ALL YOU.

Bella you dear delight!!! Its been a harrowing week or two doing just that but nowhere near as gracefully. More like a rhinoceros than a dainty, graceful elephaunt. My feet are still sticky from the yolks . . .

Un "pas de deux" excellent ! La scène s'est transformée en couveuse d'oeufs... d'ici la fin du spectacle, nos deux amis seront applaudis par de merveilleux petits poussins jaunes ou bleus!
ce dessin est vraiment très beau. je l'aime.
Bisous

This is too much... More than one illustration from you in a day should already be considered hazardous to my health. This is just eggshellent dear, it takes my breath away.

I love how you incorporated your signature in there btw!;)

gracefully adorable!!!

Carol Lawecki said...

Hello Bella, as I said on your last illustration, I love it when you draw elephants and this is no eggception. LOL! This is adorable!!

Barbara said...

That's something to behold, Bella. A cautious elephant, gentle and blue tiptoeing through eggshells. Something we do every day, not always as eggspert as they are.

Kathi said...

Thank you Bella! You gave me my first laugh of the day! :D
This is wonderful!

Caroline said...

Another whimisical masterpiece, Bella! I adore this one!

yoborobo said...

I am going to avoid making some silly yolk about eggs and instead say I adore this. I would love to see the 'after' image. Would it include a frying pan? Speaking of eggs, does your brain feel scrambled? V and I have been practicing our clog dancing routines. xox!

Amy C said...

oooohhhhhh so delightfully sweet in their robins egg blueness!
I would love to twirl with them but I think I would break all of the little eggs.
(p.s. you can put on your boa and come on over and play anytime).

Megan Coyle said...

I LOVE LOVE that elephant :)

I thoroughly enjoy checking out your illustrations for illustration Friday. So well done :)

Jack Foster said...

Well, seeing as I’m late again visiting... everyone has used my eggsamples of eggstraordiary eggsellence. Your work is like stepping into a dream Bella! Your colors and characters take me to a magical place! The pose, shape and girls hair is so wonderful. She is so lovable!

IVYALLOVER said...

oh my...really? You always surprise us with such a wonderful take on all if the IF's topics. This is lovely, so gentle, so delicious. I adore you - your work takes me to another world. Thank you for sharing your delightful work ♥

Andrew Finnie said...

Hey Bella, am I the first to comment? If I was I would be 'stertle"!

Eggshells, and bald men. What do they have in common? I bet you asked this question at least once a day on rising....

Well, she is so cute, even the elephant is cute, and the little splash of chick is better than a splatter of chick :)

Oh well I will be stertling off :)

Shirley said...

Gads, Bella, you always make my mouth drop with your clever-awesome-super-duper-sweet illustrations! Your succinct wit makes me smile..as do all of your fans. Love the eggsperts! They are adorable and I am always just so envious of your ability to capture warmth and love in line and color as you do. Bravo, dear Bella! And thank you for your sweet words - you always know how to make me go, "awww, shucks!". Have a lovely rest o' the week!! Hugs to you.
