IF: Leap

Wow! I haven't posted anything for 3 months! Good grief! Well, here's my interpretation of Illustration Friday's theme, Leap. Even though I think it was meant to go along with Feb. 29 (Leap Year), I took a different approach! We're studying all about the seasons in my Kindergarten classroom, and this seemed to fit perfectly. This little duck is LEAPing for joy that it's (almost) Spring! Thanks for stopping by...please feel free to leave any comments. This was done quickly without a lot of "fluff," but I kinda' like this one that way...simply colored. :)

I am so happy to see your art and feel your happy vibes again! I still owe you an atc... This is just what the doctor ordered, pure sunshine! btw, taking the leap means a lot of hard and uncertain times and i know you are a mom and it isn't as easy to take as many risks when you have a little one depending on you so i just want you to know i admire you for being a wonderful teacher, artist and person!

So glad to have you back, Tracy! And just like your adorable duck and butterfly, I'm also leaping for joy in anticipation for Spring. I love the blush on his cheek and the texture of the cloud!
