Cite and sweet! I always LOVE the way you render water, and this is such a solid piece with the sea horse and wonderful fish and the kid's content expression. Love it! -kate : )

Rrramone said...

That is one heck of a seahorse. :-) Nice work!

Wonderful piece Ginger! I can feel the swirling of the water. Love the expression on the crab!

Liz Jones said...

Good advice! Is this part of a picture book? I seem to remember you've done a bunch of seashore bits...

Sherry Rogers said...

This is one of my favorite of you kids! She is just precious!

Thanks everyone. This is a bit of a recycle. I had done a similar illustration for a book, "Princess Caitlin's Tiara" by Kim Messinger and Michael LaLumiere, and this was an outgrowth of things we didn't use. Later I used parts of this as a title page for my website, then changed the site, and saved the child in the waves. I added more fish, more waves, and a friendly gull to give it more life. And of course, we needed a SIGN..... so c'mon yall, DIVE IN!
