Elea Repose - Illustration Friday

I am laughing at myself this morning.  The topic for Illustration Friday, is "Satellite."  However, my eyes told me our topic was the Hawaiian flower, Elea.  I must be getting old.  Elea Flower is the dear soul who came up with this Friday's topic!!!

I'm going to post this drawing anyhow. I could not find many facts about this beautiful flower online. It is a lovely bloom.  The soft pinks and gentle swirls of this flower reminded me of baby's faces.  Hence the title Elea Repose.

When my daughter was born, I thought she looked just like a little rose. Lovely drawing.

I'm glad you posted this - even if it was the submitter and not the actual prompt! It's just so sweet. You have a beautiful blog.

And thanks for visiting my blog and your very nice comment!

When you showed me the original drawing, and told me the story - I laughed a little - but absolutely love Elea Repose - a perfect picture!

Thank goodness for the misunderstanding with the topic as it has produced such a charming and inventive drawing as this.
