farm for illustration friday



Clarence (on the right), helps Rosy adjust to freedom after her narrow escape from a cosmetics farm. She hopes that one day, she will return to her natural colour, though she can't remember what it is. Clarence says he likes her pink anyway. I think the two of them will be very happy together in their meadow.

Wonderful post all-round... great illustration, beautiful story, and just a hint of social commentary. They look very happy together, and here's to living out life with good company.

OK, now I'm sounding like a broken record, but I love this - the colors are wonderful, and the sheep are clearly a loving couple! :-) Just beautiful!
