Friday Favorites : Duet

Recently, I received a very nice comment from someone who was featured in my Friday Favorites. It is so good to know that being included here makes people feel special.

I constantly struggle with not knowing whether anyone enjoys my work, so I know how it feels to muddle through just hoping that someone will notice. I’m glad that I am able to bring a little recognition and happiness to people who really deserve it.

That being said, here are this week’s featured fifteen. I encourage you to leave comments on their work, it really does make a difference.

  • Hummingbirds by Cloudery : This piece is just gorgeous. And striking. And flawless. And, I could go on spouting adjectives all day, but I won’t. Stunning. Okay, okay, I’m done.
  • The Armadillo with the Bird by His Side by Emma Arnold : There were a lot of bird-themed submissions this week. I found this one to be rather unique. The detail work is fabulous and the colors are very, very nice.
  • Duet by Christine Hargreaves : Another well done bird duet, the patterns in this piece are lovely and the background color complements them so well.
  • Duet! by Chiara Fiorentino : An adorable non-bird duet. These two characters are so very cute together that I can’t help but wonder what kinds of adventures they might share.
  • Duet by Anastasia Kierst : Snails playing the tuba? Brilliant!
  • Duet by Jane Massey : This little duet is completely adorable and brings back fond memories of my recorder-playing days at the G&T school.
  • Duet by Jeslyn Cantrell : Another cute pair – these two have an entrepreneurial spirit that brings back more childhood memories (although, my lemonade stand consisted of old lawn chairs and a TV tray – heh).
  • Duet by Wellywearer : A pair of blue birds hanging out in a very interesting black & white tree. Love the style here and the design in the trunk of the tree.
  • Duet by Ale Balanzario : I just can’t resist a blue bird…or a sweet doggy. I love the little song they’re singing.
  • Duet by Afi : I’m usually not one for mushy sentiment (heh), but the details and colors in this piece just totally won me over.
  • Duet by Peter Nyberg : There are two things I can’t resist – beautiful pen & ink drawings and anthropomorphized trees. This piece has them both. Yay!
  • A Couple of Odd Balls by Elizabeth Rose Stanton : There is something creepy but fascinating about this piece. I love how the eyes look weary. My own eyes look much the same way lately.
  • Duet by Fernanda Fonseca : Sober and shifty-eyed – a very interesting and intriguing combination.
  • Duet by Jacob Haynes : More fabulous pen & ink. I have to say that it was the hair that really drew me in. Heh.
  • Duet by Kylie : And, last but certainly not least, everyone’s favorite duetting duo of yesteryear!

  1. Ruth, you are too cute! Of course you may have pizza and art day with us….we’ll even hang up a flyer or two, or ten, or fifty. However, I don’t know what good that would do little Izzy, unless she’s hoofed it to Ohio. Perhaps she has hitch-hiked? In which case, she is welcome to have pizza and art day, as well! 😉
    Also wanted you to know how much I enjoy your Illustration Friday posts. I try to look at all of the submissions, but I never seem to be able to catch up. I can’t wait to go back and see your featured fifteen. You, obviously, have marvelous taste!
