When I first started choosing and sharing my Friday Favorites, I was very methodical about the process. I made sure that I gave myself plenty of time to get my post and comments all written and ready to go by Friday morning.
Somewhere along the line, that little plan fell by the wayside.
Now, I find myself spending Friday morning rushing to get a post up by Friday afternoon. I always have my favorites picked out ahead of time, but somehow the time for actually writing the post keeps getting sucked away by other activities.
So, I guess the lesson here is, focus and eliminate distrac….ooo! A bird!
Um, yeah, where was I? Ah, yes, lesson. So, yeah, the topic this week was lesson. And these were my favorites.
- The Flying Lesson by Kimberley Kermode : Speaking of birds, these ones I just couldn’t resist. I love both the color and the texture of this piece.
- Lesson by Joanna McMullan : You may recognize these birds from past Friday Favorites because, well, I can’t get enough of them…even when they have passed on to the great beyond. Heh.
- Lesson by Amber Alvarez : Another adorable animal learns a very valuable lesson (a tad too late) in this series of illustrations. The fox is so cute, I can’t help but love him. Is that cruel?
- Lesson by littlebirth : A valuable lesson for the fisherman, but not necessarily the fish. But isn’t it cute?
- Lesson by Dave Palmer : Okay, okay here’s one with a happy ending. Are we all feeling better now?
- Lesson by Barbara : Sometimes the lesson is in the process – like combining patterns to create something beautiful.
- The Lesson of Humptoro-D2 by C.P. Adorio : And sometimes the lesson is in the details…the AMAZING details. Ahh, pen & ink…*swoon*
- Lesson by Christine Hargreaves : Sometimes the lesson is in the trees.
- Lesson by Tusen : And sometimes the lesson is that the trees are not what they seem. I have to say, this piece threw me for a loop the first time I looked at it, but that is what I love about it.
- Lesson by Louise Taylor : A simply gorgeous illustration of the lesson that ‘fine feathers don’t make fine birds’.
- Lesson by Mindy Bethke : Love the message of this piece. I can’t disagree with anything that involves eating cupcakes!
- Music Lessons by Julia Icenogle : I learned a similar lesson when I was young. Lugging a saxophone case on and off the bus on a daily basis was surely easier than an upright bass, but it was still no walk in the park!
- Lesson by Drew Lee : Gorgeous colors in this piece that, incidentally, fit last week’s topic too.
- Lessons for Young Zombies by J.L. Martin : A useful lesson, indeed. If, you know, you happen to be among the ranks of the walking undead. Heh.
- How to Draw Jellybean by Mark Harmon : Now it’s your turn! Get drawing!
