IF "Fleeting"


The IF challenge this past week was "fleeting". The first thing that came to my mind is how time is all too fleeting. I chose to illustrate this in transparent watercolor using my whimsical style of illustration.


The old adage "Time flies when you're having fun" is the title to this illustration. I had great fun with this challenge. I hope it brings a smile to your face as well!


Remember to take time to smell the flowers, chase butterflies and watch beautiful sunsets, for as we know, time is all to fleeting!


Happy day!
