Illustration Friday: "Bottled"; びんづめ bindume

Some wear their heart on their sleeve, some keep things bottled up, and some of them make that work for them. But for many, it's a matter of keeping a nice balance, like being sensibly impulsive, if that's possible?

  1. I SO enjoy your wonderful drawings and paintings, Nancy! It's always a joy to visit your blog and see some eye candy! I loved the drawing and photo of Bello and Valentino too!

  2. I love how you interpreted "bottled" it is such a sensitive piece, and beautifully drawn.

  3. I like this. It feels cozy. I enjoy small spaces.

    That little window could let in a lot of light and mood. I want a little cubby like this in my house.

  4. Im the opposite and love my space and the great out doors, I sense claustrophobia here. Its great how your images allow people to see, and feel more importantly, their own perosnal response

  7. Annuk - now, if we're talking eyecandy, when are we going to see a giveaway of one your gorgeous rings? hehe, sorry, I'm saving up for a summer workshop and feeling a little cheap at the moment ;)

    Linda Hensley, Little bit of blue - thanks, that's the ultimate goal, isn't it - to transmit something, even if what they recieve isn't what you originally meant ;)

    Rubin Pingk - I know! Oldworld windowseats seem so lovely, I hope to have one some day.

    Janet - The area is definitely cramped and I had to play around with that a bit, but I actually went from open, large windows to closing it in - it felt like it needed that double-sidedness to it, or at least I felt it :)

    Shirley - thank you Shirley! You know, I'm always at such awe at what you create, I'm recomending your blog all over the place! :)

    Penelope - such praise, you leave me at a loss for words. Thank you!

  8. Yes, I would agree that a balance is good. This is an achingly beautiful drawing of a little girl withdrawn. She's the kind of girl you fall in love with. One of the best things about making drawings is that you love the people you create on paper (who didn't exist before you made the drawing).
