Scribblepicnic

Hello, the theme this week over at Dotty hill is boat. And like umbrella, a boat us something that to me symbolizes safety. I am not sure why, I don't really love or dislike actual boats, but to me the image of a boat in art represents being carried to safety, especially if the boat is a tiny sweet boat, or a folded paper boat etc. I am sure that us just me, but that thought led me to this piece....

  3. Andrea,
    What a lovely picture and thought too. And a fairy too. Your watercolour background is soft and the colours of the piece wonderful.

  5. So nice! Is this painted completely flat on paper? The waves especially have such great depth to them!
    Cute border, too!

  8. OOh, that is a really good insight from Lissa above and totally agree. Andrea, this is a truly astounding piece! I'm so loving seeing a different side of your creativity coming out lately with these scribble picnics. I love that it is a handmade paper boat and then, naturally, a fairy. So magical indeed. Love the border too. The whole thing is very polished. Thank you for this lovely addition!

  9. I know the feeling only too well when being returned safely to harbor and home by a ship! Being far from shore is exciting, but there is also always a tiny feeling inside that the deep water can be unkind and unforgiving at times. . . . .and of course there is nowhere to actually 'run to'!
    Such a lovely concept expressed in your beautiful art here Andrea, and I love that you have set it inside a circle which also gives the feeling of a round trip.

    Happy day - Mary
