Once I knew how I wanted everything to look I really had to work at this design to make my little characters come to life. I sketched, erased, and tossed paper for three days before it all came together. Then I had fun with the FMQ. I'm far from being expert, but I loved making the swirls, loops. and straight lines that show the motions of the cats and flowerpots, and the spray of the hose. My hard work paid off because this little pair is my husband's favorite so far. I debated background fabrics for quite a while, and I'm still not sure that I made the best choices, but the soft colors of pink and green somehow seemed to fit the gentleness of spring.

Hats up! Your series of silhouettes are so intriguing and delicate. I love them all and can't wait for June to come! I am just in awe how you fetch that moment of joy so precisely in your work, I can truly imagine I am observing the children from a distance. What does it take to sketch like that? Warm greetings from Bots. Nicole
