Go ahead. Sneeze.


I landed on my illustration Sneeze for this week's www.illustrationfriday.com theme natural.  Sneezing is an unstoppable, supernatural and often inconvenient bodily action.  It was also the pick for this year's Tomie dePaola contest.  I didn't win.  But it gave me a chance to use my most underutilized color. Purple.  And guess who also made an appearance?  The Easter Bunny.  He or she is getting blown away by the impact.  If you read my last post you might think that this could be a new tactic in my arsenal to rid the yard of our tenacious resident.  It's worth a try!

When I looked at the picture, I realized that I always close my eyes when I sneeze. Does everybody? Love that purple, and the Easter Bunny! :-)

LOVE that bunny! This is a good one, Sharon. This year, you would have had to bake a cake to win, right? ;) Happy Easter!

The rabbit has such a sweet look on his face! And I love your use of purple (my favorite color). :-)

I am doing a lot of sneezing lately due to allergies. The sneezes surely do create a lot of wind!

...a sneeze is a nose breeze. And perhaps a bit of thunder and showers mixed in?
