superstition for IF


















Silas distinctly remembered his mother saying that a bird's dropping on your head is good luck.

Very cool. I heard it was good luck for birds to leave their calling cards on your car too. That must be the blue bird of happiness

Love your sense of forms and shapes, and colours. They feel so direct.

That's great! The colours are lovely and punchy. Have you ever had a bird dropping on your head? I have! Yuck!! :-)

In my country we have the same superstitious things, but it came with a 'cicak' pee hehehe...

Great pic! It'd fit perfectly in a book as illustration. It's so... cute :D

Unichorn said...

Uhm...eehhmm... novel?
I have to admit: I'm totally absorbed with my study, work and painting at the moment. I'll try Nanowrimo again next year :(
But: I'm painting on wood now, and still experimenting with textures. That's worth something, isn't it? :D

I LOVE this! And on a luggage tag! This inspires me to look for unusual substrates for my paintings.
