She Burst Out Laughing!

“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”

She Burst Out Laughing! – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor and Ink

When Alice the Alpaca looked in the mirror at her new hair-do, she burst out laughing!  Burst is the word this week for Illustration Friday.  I have painted this alpaca before, but that was before she went to the beauty parlor.  😀

Jim Rohn

Born to an Idaho farming family in the mid-1900s, Jim was ingrained with a work ethic that has served him well throughout his life. At 25, he met his mentor Earl Shoaff. And over the next six years he made his first fortune, yet didn’t get into speaking until he moved to Beverly Hills, California, when a friend at the Rotary Club asked him to tell his success story, which Rohn titled “Idaho Farm Boy Makes It to Beverly Hills.”

His speech went over so well that he received more invitations to share it, and better yet, they started paying him for it. In the beginning, he spoke in front of college and high-school classes and at service clubs, before moving on to seminars in 1963, which launched him into the personal-development business. From then on, Jim Rohn became a trailblazer in the self help and personal development industry, impacting the lives of millions through his life-changing material.

    Haha! Too cute! Love the colors! She is quite a character. And you do the open mouth very well. Usually I avoid open mouths and trying to do the teeth and tongue and all that. This looks great! I love the fuzziness!
