IF: Intricate Tangle of Tires

Zdepski's painting of A is for Ava with Truck
Zdepski's watercolor of Ava, all alone
A is for Ava... I finally finished these pages. I've had other things that pushed the finish aside, but i just finished some touches 10 minutes ago... check the time stamp on the jpgs!

The sign area on the truck will get the text, A is for Ava in Photoshop. The page is turned to reveal her "all alone" in a yard shaped like an A in a field of used tires.... poor, poor puppy...

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.....

This is serendipity, since Intricate was the Illustration Friday word today, and this is busiest couple of paintings I've done in years... tires, chainlink, grass... ughh...

Love the depth in this-- both in the composition and in the color.

These are beautiful. I really love the colors and texture of it. I never would have imagined a huge pile of tires this way.

Awwwww, indeed...sweet puppy. I love that mountain of tires! And the colors are wonderful. Very clever "A" too. Thanks for showing both pages.
