Illustration Friday – Poise


I finished this piece not too long ago. It's called "Waiting for the Flood." The two women show great poise, even in the eventuality of something disastrous coming. This is in honor of those who have gone through hurricanes, hunger, losing jobs, adversity – and are still able to show poise, grace, faith and strength. Sorry the photo isn't better – I just couldn't seem to get a nice, bright shot of this one.

This is a great illustration Valerie. I love the patterns going on in the boat, the leaves and in their clothes. I wish I could see a brighter version of this one.
