IF: Confined


Feels good to be able to participate in Illustration Friday. I'm also using this for a little gift. My sister's expecting, I'm going to be an aunt! She's due at the end of the summer, so it's way too early to know if it's a boy or girl. For now they've nicknamed the baby "Lentil". That's extra cute to me because my babies were Bean and Sprout while I was pregnant. See a family pattern? The little one in this painting is "confined" for now...until the arrival date. I may make this into a card and say something like "I'll be seeing you soon". Not sure yet.
