ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY ~ CONFINED

No longer CONFINED to earth the travelers set off in the safe CONFINMENT of their hot air vehicle. The theory is to keep the cat busy, let the dog be the lookout and make sure you have an accurate map. There is a job for everyone on this flight.

Huge fun! And as a fan of words and language, I was interested in the contrast between the negative feel of 'confined' and the positive feel of 'confinement' as you used it. Cool.

Thank you all for the generous comments. This is actually the fourth version of this theme. I had done several others but settled on this one, I just wish I had painted it bigger. I am also working on a Black and White pen version ...just for fun and to test myself.

they may not be confined to earth but they sure are to that basket till they land. I can't think of a better place to be confined in for an afternoon, scenery would be amazing and worth the confinement.
