Illustration Friday: Moon

Well, this week's theme for Illustration Friday is "Moon" - I had every intention of doing a new illustration for this week, but I have not one but two prior IF submissions that are perfect for the theme and I just had to use them (plus it's been so long since I submitted for IF, I'm sure these are long forgotten). The first one, above, was for the IF theme "Reflection". Click here to see what I wrote about it back then. This was my most commented-on entry ever... (Created in Painter 9, btw)

The second illustration below was for the IF theme "Night". The scripture verse speaks for itself. Here's what I had to say about it back then...


If I have time, I'd like to still work up a new little illustration for Moon - but this time it would be about my Honey"moon". We'll see if I have time...meanwhile, here is a photo from our honeymoon to Costa Rica - what an incredible trip it was in every way!! This photo was from the Canopy Tour we took in the rainforrest - zipping from tree-top to tree-top on zip lines was quite a rush for a couple of middle-aged newleyweds!! That's me and Johnny in the front middle on the bridge...


  1. Not one, but TWO beautiful entries! Congrats on your honeymoon adventure...sounds like a lot of fun! :)

  2. I remember that big moon--pretty then; pretty now.

    These are beautiful. :) I have missed you.

  4. The reflection moon is gorgeous - so soft and glowing! And congrats on being a happy newlywed!!!

  5. Both pieces are beautiful, and since I'm new to IF this year, there were new to me! The one with the large moon reflecting on the lake is quite amazing, but I also like the one with the poem, with the little girl looking up.

    Congratulations on your wedding and a fun honeymoon!

  6. gorgeous moon, the colours are velvety.
    Cool honeymoon, sounds like johnny swept you off your feet:)

  7. Oh wow!! I love your moon over the water and the details in the trees are awesome!! Beautiful!

    That's my Sonshine . . . she did it well back then and still doing it now. She's reaping the rewards of the seeds she has planted in so many lives. Father loves her beyond words and blessed her with the man of her dreams. Congratulations my precious friend.
    Morning Glory!
