(un)FOLD

If you want to levitate, first you have to FOLD your legs. Then sit peacefully and meditate on something really fantastic... like say, Blue Bell Banana Pudding ice cream. You will notice that all your cares and worries just melt away, and you will be hovering gently above the ground. OMmmm.....

This is a little 9"X12" oil painting that I just finished. I like reducing animals to basic shapes and making a painting of them. This is the latest... wonder if something like this would sell somewhere?

(edit)
OOPS! I just noticed that the Illustration Friday word is UNfold... well that is what you have to do after you come back down. Unfold your legs... and go scoop out a bowl of ice cream.

Kitty has REALLY enjoyed the BBBP ice cream, given his/her rotund form! Nice little acrylic, DJ. You seem to be enjoying getting away from the computer and doing some REAL painting!

looks like my kitty when she holds her breath and turns blue, she only levitates during the full moon.
