:A Girl and Balloons, Part 2:


My sketch from several nights ago. Here she is with a little bit of color added. There are so many colors that I could've gone with for her dress but I stuck with lavender. Maybe it's because my blog's theme is pale grape-y tones, maybe it's because purple is the color of the island of Kaua'i (where I grew up), or maybe it's because I still have lavender plants on my brain...I'm gonna grow some on my lanai out back. I read somewhere that Maui grows its own lavender. It would be awesome to support local farmers here in Hawaii. As I am typing, listening to Pandora.com, Bing Crosby is singing "Young at Heart"...it adds a bit of whimsy to this post :) ♥


  1. I like the purple shades in your blog!did you draw the butterflies too? They're very pretty! I wish butterflies were of all colors! Ooh and yes you should grow some lavendar!--ooh and cherry tomatoes!

  2. Hi Hillary, the butterfly is not a drawing, unfortunately I cannot draw that realistic :) and I will grow lavender and possibly vegetables. You should too :)


So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
