Today’s illustration is for Illustration Friday‘s weekly exercise which I have not been very diligent about. Today, though, there is company upstairs and I begged off in my usual anti-social nature. Actually, I’m not as anti-social as I used to be. Age does strange things to people, it does.
At any rate, I was just advised that the Strawberry Pavlova brought by the guests is to die for so I’m posting this illustration before emerging to partake of this must-not-miss dessert!
I don’t know if it’s visible but I used a collage of texture brushes which saved me from digging up and scanning my bits and pieces of “just-in-case” memorabilia. I should make a non-virtual version, really, but as the voice from this machine keeps reminding me (it announces the time every hour–it’s to remind me that there is a world out there), time is not on my side so it’s catch as catch can and this will have to do!
Now for a slice of the Pavlova…
