Early Rains, Woodland Waters - Illustration Friday

I love the magical forests of our childhood.  My sister Clytie and I often walk there with our cameras.  This year, with the arrival of early spring rains, tendrils of water thread their way down the canyon to the creek below.

For more wonderful "Early" artwork visit Illustration Friday.

This is incredible. And your phrasing - "the magical forest of our childhood" - I can completely relate to this. I was such a nature child back in the day, and nature always seemed to come to life for me. Thanks for bringing a piece of that back with your incredibly imaginative drawings :)

She is beautiful
and somewhat sad, isn't she?
Or perhaps that's shy?

Wish I could pull off hair colour like that:)
