Illustration Friday - Renewal

As soon as I saw this weeks word I knew I had to do this piece. Now that Christmas is over I'm planning on renewing mine and hubby's passports as well as organising the kids!!! This year is the year of our big family trip so not only will our passports need renewing but it is going to be a renewal of relationships for me as I reconnect with family and friends some of which I haven't seen for 10 years!! I'm very excited about seeing everyone again and taking the boys to where I grew up!

This is a beautiful illustration. It's so active and is indicative of the theme. Renewal means movement, anticipation, and a renewal of hope.

Great piece!

Hi Nicola, the passport thing, is exactly what I have planned also. I lost mine last year and need to renew mine. We are waiting for one at the moment. Great to be organised and this doesn't happen often for me, lol!
Thank you Nicola for your beautiful message, really blew me away. I am a soft mush today.
Your passport art is fabulous, shame we can't have designer passports? Now there's an idea!

How wonderful! This is such a sweet illo. It has a loose and spontaneous feel but has also a compositional strength of something well planned. Great job! Also I wish you and your family a fun, safe and adventurous journey this year. Best wishes!

Funny that you mention passports, as I was just thinking this weekend that I should GET one. It's been on my "bucket list" for some time now. I don't know if I will ever be able to afford to go anywhere, but I do have dreams to travel to a few places. :)
