Illustration Friday – Adrift


This piece, Waiting for the Flood, but seems to fit the theme this week. Bad fortune seems to follow some people around naturally. Is it something they invite by their state of mind or just bad luck? It somehow seems to set them adrift on their journey as they wait for the next disaster to hit.

Beautiful! I am a big fan of pattern, and your's are so perfect I first thought it was collaged papers or fabrics. Just marvelous.

Unfortunately, I also feel like sometimes we just go around waiting for the next disaster.

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. Love the mosaic boat, the tall trees, the women who stand as tall as the trees.... Perhaps they expect bad fortune, but at least they look good doing it. :)

Hi Valerie,
I just found your blog and I must say that I love yout style. This piece in particular reminds me of one of my favorite books: The Mists of Avalon, by Marion zimmer Bradley. Very beautiful!
