Happy Belated May Day

This is the first of many drawings I will be doing from the photos I took on Saturday from the last Fairy Fest in Portland, Oregon. I was less than pleased with this one. The scan looks better than the original drawing. Also the photo was of the whole maypole and a couple of other kids but I just couldn't make it work. I don't mind the drawing but the colored pencil part just would not work for me on this drawing. So back to work on other drawings!

Good to see you again and to catch up. :)

I´m in love with those boots on May 1st.

I can see the little girls on the May pole now, it will be fun to see little fairies popping into your drawings.

Hi Leigh,
I worked at a now defunct software company just off the highway - is it the 205? Can't even remember these things now. I've been in Australia for 8 years (moved here for love.... awwww.....) - but my parents still live in the PNW so I make it back there every few years.
Thanks for dropping in to my blog!
