IF "Acrobat"

Mixed Media 8.5x11

Hi there how was your weekend? Mine was good we had some great weather here in New Jersey - autumn is in the air and I'm loving it! This weekend I was inspired by IF's word "Acrobat". I immediately had this vision of doing things I can't physically do such as floating in air, like in so many of my dreams. Acrobats, maybe easy to some, impossible to many - like me. Below I share with you my original sketch before adding color digitally.

Have a great Monday oh and be sure to stop by tomorrow for Dog Day Tuesdays. I'll have another pooch design to share with you hope you'll like it!

    Msartist I use Photoshop to color in this piece. I like to add texture and Photoshop is wonderful for that. It adds another dimension - thanks for asking.
