Illustration Friday: Tree



Tree:  A loose interpretation.  


Hold on.  I know what you're going to ask.  Hey, Bella, what's that blue one supposed to be?  She's supposed to be a dragonfly, but I just couldn't get the wing pattern right.  

Let's move on, shall we?

Last week, I drew a thingamabob for Shy, but then it ran off and I couldn't find it.  We searched high and low.  Darn, it sure is good at hiding.




Happy weekend!

Wooop, wooop, WOOP! I'm wooping with happiness over here as I view these AWESOMELY imaginative and sssssaaaawwweeettt illustraitions, dear Bella! Your "trees" are so fabulous and little dragonfly blue is darling..as are all of these mighty insect swimmers. Puppy is the perfect touch! And goodness, your shy piece makes me want to see what happens next. You really know how to draw us in and tell tales that we want to know more about. You rock, sister!! xoxo

'surprise' is the core of humor; you continue to amuse/amaze, bella :)

k.h.whitaker said...

These are wonderful Bella. I really, really love the one for shy. Now I'm off to draw for the first time in ages. Maybe, just maybe, I can make a post for this weeks prompt. I think my motivation has been hiding with your shy creature ;)

Oh jeeze louise. These illustrations are heartwarming. Your creations are a stimulant and intensifier. When I come here happy, I become elated. Today, when I saw your illustrations, I immediately changed my screen because I was so afraid that I won't be able to relish them for a long time. I felt a sense of impermanence, a fleeting moment and I had palpitations. I don't know why I felt that way. It is as if I saw something that delighted me yet I am forbidden to see it and therefore I felt guilty when I did. I was feeling blue today and when I saw your drawings they made me cry because I felt I did not deserve to see them. So I kept of peeking instead. The abdomen of the dragonfly darling little girls eventually made me giggle. They are so cute. Bella Sinclair you are a genius. For the past month I have been seeing a lot of wonderful works by truly gifted artists. They are exceptional works of art. After a while, I become bored with them. I notice that their recent work is a repetition of their last work. It takes a truly versatile and gifted artist to create something new and refreshing every time. They are few and far between. That is your art. It is endearing, lovable, soothing, brilliant, full of mirth and very intelligent. Your art is a very good example of something cute and intellectual. When viewing your work, I like that I can be a grown up and a kid at the same time. I truly love these drawings very much. Thank you for the wonderful cheer. Tsup!

Indigene Theresa said...

Your creations are always so magical and they make me feel so free and happy, which is why I LOVE it! :)

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Bella,


Your work always puts a smile on my face, thank you for showing us the magic.
Love your sweet swimmers and they look like they could be in a synchronised swimming team.
Hope they find the cute thingamabob!


Do enjoy the weekend
hugs
Carolyn

Ted Blackman said...

Oh crap, now I really feel guilty. I've been pulling those dandelions from my lawn. Didn't know they were the playground of the cute.

And the SHY thingamabob is brilliant. And that's a word I don't use more than 5 times a day.

I signed in with the wrong account for my previous comment. Just testing here to see if my avatar is back on.
Please, don't get up, Bella. I'll see my way out. Bye.

yoborobo said...

Oh, thingamabob, how I love you. I am lousy at hiding, too. And dandelion swimmers! I'm glad none of them are stinkbugs. I am done with stinkbugs, even if they are in cute bathing suits. Bella, your mind is a wondrous thing to behold! Happy Thanksgiving to you! xoxo

Hi Bella,
I don't know if you remember me or anything, just a huge fan, used to be a fellow blogger. I don't know where the time has gone, what has happened to my blog. It's currently overgrown with weeds. Maybe one of these days I will un-bury it, bring it back to life.
Anyways, I am at college now. Loving life. Learning lots.
As always your drawings inspire me and make me smile. They are lovely.

I hope you have an awesome weekend,
Heather

I was searching my blog for an image I drew six years ago and I stumbled upon this:

I personally think Bella would say:

Darling beautiful lovely sweet favourite Renee (all said without a pause) you have taken the queen's heart (Bella's) and have beaten that little bratty bad bratty Ces (no pause again) by a score of 3 to 1.5.

Love live Bella, Queen of our Hearts.

Love Renee xoxoxo

Hahahaha!! I just thought I'd share that. I miss the three of us bantering. :)

The blue one is my favorite :) How are you, Miss Bella? Hope all is well, it's been so long since I stopped by, but seeing your doodles always makes me smile, I need to visit more often :)

Juan Carlos Partidas said...

Bella, your illustrations are beautiful. Congratulations.

Shirley said...

Dear Bella..I hope you conquer those potatoes! I laugh at the thought of them taunting you. : ) I know they will be delish for your thanksgiving celebration. I am so grateful for your friendship, my friend. Sending my hugs to you and your dear girls. It's so fun to know that your littlest would be like my little one...competitive with their big sisters. May you have stuffing a-plenty my friend!

Helena Milton said...

"Those puppy dogs will follow us ANYWHERE", bubbled she.

And the blob, or whatever, so innocently hiding there behind, etc.

YOU have remarkable imagination, Bel........
