Here is the list of all 25 that were chosen.  And to think, I almost didn’t enter!

This one is a scene from a fable about a girl and her cat, Socks.

“When Pigs Fly”…isn’t that an extreme thought, a hyberbole, a cliche? Whatever it is, this student driver from Canadian Bacon Airlines is defying gravity and decreasing her odds of becoming a ham sandwich.  When Pigs Fly
Go, Piggy, GO! The Sky’s the limit! (Sorry, couldn’t resist another hyperbole!)

Phoebe knew today was the big day. Still, her heart leapt as she opened the door. How EVER will she choose?
I love this topic for Illustration Friday! Even though I am not quite done recreating this piece as a finished painting on canvas, I wanted to post the preliminary version of it before the deadline. The “OPEN” theme is so perfect for my own family’s trials as of late. We continue to strive to remain open to reasons in store. Finding joy in the journey is not always so easy, but it is truly rewarding beyond comprehension. May each of you have doors that open to pleasant surprises in the days to come.


Much Love,
