Drifting Away on a Summer Cloud

I was sitting at the deck this hot and lazy Thursday afternoon trying to answer some multiple choice questions with a number 2 pencil when my thoughts drifted to a summer getaway in the countryside, with wild flowers of every color surrounding me.

I remembered the lush, green grass at Niagara Falls State Park in New York that we visited last month. I remembered how I was tempted to flee from the tram ride I was on so I could roll on the grass dotted with white and yellow dandelions. I thought it was such a dandy-looking blanket of grass.

And then my pencil drifted off into a blank, white paper. This carefree girl clutching flowers emerged from my imagination...drifting away on a summer cloud.

This is my very first entry for Illustration Friday. This week's theme is "Drifting." My mind keeps drifting off into other places, hence this drawing. Will I get to share another piece of my "art attacks" in the future? We'll see.
