Illustration Friday – Yield – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor & Sharpie ATC

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”
– Helen Keller

 ”An optimist is the human personification of spring.”

Illustration Friday – Yield – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor & Sharpie ATC

I have had my eye on a weekly blog project called Illustration Friday.  This is my first entry.   A blogger friend, Cindy at The Slumbering Herd, enters her beautiful artwork into it every week, I think.    Here is a link to her yield.   They put up a word on Friday and many people do their illustrations based on the word.  I am doing Yield and this is my tomato crop.  :D

Yield -verb (used with object)
1.  to give forth or produce by a natural process or in return for cultivation: This farm yields enough fruit to meet all our needs.

I painted it from a reference photo by KreativeKay at WetCanvas.

About Helen Keller

American author and activist Helen Keller was born in Alabama in 1880; she became blind and deaf after a childhood fever. When she was 7, Ann Sullivan famously coaxed her out of her sullen, angry shell and taught her to communicate. From then on, Keller took on the world. She graduated from Radcliffe, traveled the world visiting sweatshops and speaking out for the powerless, helped found the ACLU, and wrote eleven books. She died in 1968.
