Thank you so much! :huggle: I wanted the imagery of the umbrella to reflect a blossom, so I'm glad to hear that worked. :D

Eee! This is so adorable! I can imagine the next frame in which the little birdie gives itself a little shake to try to dry itself off. Happy birthday again EA and I'm so, so happy to see another one of your special drawings, Suil! :hug:

Omg, I adore this so much. The colors are so serene, and that little bird... I have so many feels for this picture :love: It makes me think that, no matter how bad things get, there are still reasons to be hopeful and look towards a brighter future.

You are so talented sweetie. This picture is just so gorgeous and inspires so many emotions.

There is such sweet tenderness in this picture and the bird as a harbinger of hope and happier days is lovely. You really ought to be illustrating children's books. I've probably said that before but it's true. Just gorgeous.

Beautiful. The gentle colours... hope radiating from the little bird and its umbrella, and the sort of tranquility (in a good way)... so beautiful. :D

The imagery is just so beautiful and quirky. You got the warm sunny glow from the umbrella just right and the red of the umbrella itself contrasts nicely with the purples of the rain. The bird is plain sweet.

Thank you very much! I have a real fondness for surreal imagery, and I was happy that I managed to get this looking like I'd pictured it in my mind. I played with the colours quite a bit; the umbrella was a bluish grey originally and the bird more of a brown, but these hues (red umbrella, grey bird) seemed to amek the image come alive that little bit more. :)

That red is perfect and the umbrella practically glows with sunshine. It makes me happy. :D

Awww... I love the little bird on the umbrella handle. The clouds in the sky are so peaceful as well. Love!

And the birdie is just a little cutie pie. I just want to snuggle with it... if birds were into snuggling. I know mine isn't. :p

Thank you! :hug: My bird is a snuggler with me, but she's bitey with everyone else. ;) This picture actually came out looking like I'd imagined it in my head, so I'm pretty happy with it. :)
