IF....



If...it were spring in the California foothills; the Lupin and Poppies would be in bloom.


And


If...I were 20; I'd have long red hair.


And


If...I had a convertible; it would be red.


And


If...I had the top down; this would be how my dogs would ride.


So...


The only reality in this whole drawing is my dogs...


I woke up with this picture in my mind. Wasn't sure if I could draw it well enough for others to be able to tell what it was; but I think it came out fine. Hard to get the tones right in PS with the golds and greens...The Lupin really are purple, not mud blah...

If...I were 20 and had long red hair and a shiny red convertible, and was cruising down the hiway in California...I certainly hope I wouldn't be sharing the front seat with a dog. Not that I have anything against dogs...
This is great! It gave me a much needed smile in the middle of a particularly crappy week. Thanks!

Thanks Teri, I had fun drawing and painting it.

Tracy, Don't know what to tell ya', my mutts are with me everywhere...Yeah, maybe when I was 20 there would have been some hunk in the car with me...That would be a whole other type painting! Glad you got a smile out of it, that's what's important.

I'm grinning! That was quite a dream you had - LOL! Won't be long before our rolling hills have those wildflowers blooming on them. You did a great job on the highway perspective. . . really makes this "dream" look like you are moving!
