Dorothy's return


Dorothy clicks her heels three times and says, "There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home."

My daughter loves singing Over the Rainbow and pretending to be Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.

Here's a little pencil drawing I did of my Dorothy. I scanned a patch of fabric from her favourite dress and pasted it inside my pencil lines. My daughter's grown out of her Dorothy dress now... no matter how hard she tries to squeeze into it... it's even too small to wear as a top! Looks like the dress will be a hand-me-down to a lucky little cousin.

Illustration Friday: Capable

My Love Grows

Even the smallest are capable of love.

Illustration Friday's word prompt: capable.

I only managed a sketch this week, as my little preppie (pictured above) is taking a 'mental health day' from school today. Let's hope there's less tears and tantrums and more smiles now that she's well rested.
