The Glow from Within – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor & Ink

Glow is the word this week for Illustration Friday.

 “Never underestimate the glow from within.”Beth Parker

With people, and tired old buildings… don’t judge the outside too quickly.  You could be missing something wonderful on the inside.  I painted this from a photo by Painter65 at WetCanvas.

Merry Christmas!

About Henry Moore

British sculptor Henry Moore is known for his voluptuous abstract figures. He was born in 1898 to a poor mining family. After Moore served in World War I, he became the first student of sculpture at Leeds School of Art; a sculpture studio was set up specifically for him. As he studied primitive arts, his own work became more abstract. He established The Henry Moore Foundation in 1977 to promote public appreciation of art. He died in 1986. His work can be seen in public spaces all over the world.

    Nice painting with the beautiful flowers behind the door. I like both quotes today. Yours and Henry Moore’s.

    I like the open door inviting you into the flowers!!! Nice! Loved the ornament and the idea of an ornament exchange! Did you end up with snow or did it miss you?
