Spilled Milk - Illustration Friday

The poor little LeoButterfly has spilled his breakfast of milk from the milkweed plant.  He's heart-broken and is telling his faery friend all about it.  Of course, she will gather another blossom of milk for the tiny fellow, but he's so cute, she's having a hard time not smiling.

For more wonderful artwork on the topic of Breakfast, visit Illustration Friday!

Heisann!


Of, course spilling is the word...
I have the same theme as you, but did not remeber the English word for it!
Goole's translated it into downed!!

Nice illustration you have made ;:OD)

So that is where milk comes from! I knew that story about cows was untrue - such a silly idea.

If I could only convince my girls to blog their artwork!

This is very nice wonderfully fitted for children.

I love arts. But not very good at drawing. So I can only appreciate the works of others.

Thanks for the visit and the enlightenment.

I absolutely love this piece. You have caught the whining of the butterfly and the hidden laugh of the fairy so well!!!!!!!

Very cute and lovely! You always depict expressions perfectly.

Thank you for all your comments left on my sites! I don't get much computer time while on vacation and truly appreciate your friendship. Hoping your parents are doing well. (I don't know the difference between grasshopper and locust but am hoping the critter is no longer on the windshield if I have to run an errand this afternoon! :p )

Hey Beth, love your art! Thanks for the heads up about the spammers. I always delete them but I did not know about the .....'s.

Oh Man! This is so pretty, love the little blur fairy trying not to laugh... and the distraught butterfly.

Poor little Leo! He looks so sad it nearly breaks my heart. :(
You simply must draw a happier picture of him, please, before I cry!
