Illustration Friday - Adrift

You know you are watching a really good actor when he makes you want to cry over the loss of a soccer ball. :)  I love Tom Hanks!  This is actually a requested image for my son Todd.  I told him what this week's Illustration Friday theme is, and he suggested this scene from the movie Cast Away.  To work up to it, we watched the movie together.   It was a nice way to spend our President's Day holiday together.

  1. Oh what a movie, what an idea! I love it, and it's painted so well! Glad you had some nice time together, thanks for the reminder, I love this movie - maybe my almost 16 year old will actually watch it with us!

  2. Love it Sally! Pleased to meet a fellow Texan! Well, I've been transplanted, but Texas will always be home. My love for art began with my high school art teacher. Glad your keeping the arts alive.

  3. Nice one, Sally — lots of interesting moments in that movie to inspire and paint ... and it's a perfect way to capture the emotion of loss, of something being adrift. Awesome!

  8. It's a scary thing to talk to a soccer ball. Could send your mind adrift.... nice work! Good repetition of the finger motif
