poor Silvia, good thing she has such a good friend!

Vincent Desjardins said...

I love the story going on here and I love the dotted lines representing the dog's path. Great job!

Sean Ingvard Ashby said...

Yes, sady, but great colors and I like the dotted line, too (especially how it meanders around a tree a couple of times!) Nicely done.

This is really fab Amy! Colours and composition are just super. That little owl is way too adorable. I'm sure Silvia's dog will be back in no time, he'll miss her too much! :)

Awww awwww AWWWWW! Poor little Silvia. And funny little pooch. Why bother taking the direct route when you can run around trees for a while. Hahaha. Reminds me of my crazy dog who has to run in counter clockwise circles whenever he gets excited. Love the colors!

AtelierBrigitte said...

Poor Silvia -I hope her good friend will find help soon.
Love the colorpalette in this illo.

Francisco Martins said...

Poor little Silvia! I'm sure her loyal doggie friend will come up with something to bring her home safe. After a warm bath and a yummy meal, they will all laugh about it and she will have a great storry to tell to her friends.
Who knows...maybe she can see the fairies while she's waiting! :)

LOVE IT AMY!

kiss

Gerald de Dios said...

Sorry to hear about your wrist...hopefully you have a pair of crocs laying around....the weather is supposed to be in the high 70's this week, so some flip-flops will be nice. Hope you have a quick recovery!!!

Jennifer DeDonato said...

Sorry you hurt your wrist...hope you feel better very soon.

Angela Matteson said...

So sweet. My heart goes out to her, and to you and your wrist. I'm sending healing vibes now~~~~~~~~~~

You are absolutely AMAZING. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!!! And I am terribly sorry about your wrist.:(

Bella Sinclair said...

Mwahahaha, you can't stop me from commenting on your poor wrist.

That's it, young lady. No more fooling around on the monkey bars and doing cartwheels on mountain faces. Hope you heal quickly or they give you a bionic wrist. Rest and get well soon!

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

AWWWW I'm so so sorry for her! Smart dog though. Run doggie run Silvia needs your help!
