New Art: It's Raining Hearts

Whew, it's been a busy day at the ol' Keys household! Thought I would share this little illustration:

It's Raining Hearts
7x9.5in Watercolor on hot press paper.

This was originally created for an EBSQ show, “Reinterpreting Children's Art”. I based it on a drawing my sister did for me when she was a child, of a girl standing in the rain (except the rain was hearts!). The duck with the red umbrella just showed up on his own, I think he saw her dancing there and thought it looked like fun!

Original is available in my Etsy Shop

And, this is the original drawing my sister did, lo these many years ago :)

Time to get back to work, I'm afraid I haven't much to say this evening!

That is so sweet Carmen!

There's a saying about those who complain the sun has gone down, have obviously never danced in the rain. I think this painting proves eternal sunshine is no substitute for being showered with endless love.
