Star Light, Star Bright

Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
-by Alfred Bester,

I didn't participate in this week's IF, because I was busy finishing this piece. I wanted to add a piece to my portfolio that illustrated one of my favorite nursery rhymes, and I wanted to stay congruent with my style. I thought this charming and simple nursery rhyme was the best choice.
I'm happy with the outcome. I welcome any comments.

thanks for stopping by my blog :)

I like this piece. The little boy's hair is especially well done.

Bella Sinclair said...

Oh, that is lovely. Such a beautiful scene outside the window, too. I agree with Dot. The whorl of hair on the boy is excellent!

A perfect illustration for the rhyme. Like your clean, strong lines and the little extras like the dragon tail!

This is a really strong piece. It has wonderful composition, nice colors and delightful forms. The kids have a weight to them making them very accessible. I agree with whomever said this is a portfolio piece.
