So true...Your flowers always make me smile :-)
your flowers make me smile, too (good thing, becuse that black stone makes me sad! i guess i'd rather see something there (for closure?) than have it blacked out...it's disturbing. but i understand it goes with the quote!). they always make me think, too!
I really like sketches and draws, i don´t mind, if they are simple, if they have something else. Like yours.It´s simple, but it´s great.Sorry my bad english.Alex Senna
Took me a second, didn't realize it was a headstone at first...perhaps it's the blackness, but that works in its own way...Now that I get it, it's really powerful and appropriate for this week's theme. And I love how you draw flowers!
i just love it when you throw in a touch of color.
lovely quiet place willie...
Peace at last.No place like home.nice one.
Having just buried my mother, this really spoke to me.
Great idea for Quiet! love the flowers, too!
at first its such a sad scene, and then you notice the perky flowers. v. nice, dub-ya!
Brilliant proverb-pic.I like the way the flowers spring up right from the heart.And of course I like the way the headstone is a black tunnel to...
Love your interpretation and the clean desing with the little touches of color is perfect :)
It's a sad drawing - death is the great leveller and the final silence. But the touch of colour in the flowers makes it beautiful.
Oh, that's so true... that I know how much I try not to think about it :(
Sad and hopeful at the same time. I love your illustration style!
simple and yet bold and powerful -
For the time the King and the Pawn were in the game they were quite a force to be sure, now they are both very quiet, and your peaceful illustration lends silence to the game.
you love the pin-wheel flowers dont you? The new avatar-time place and season of change...
I love those lively flowers.
I liked the quote as well as the drawing. Both are so true and meaningfull!
Your drawings are so simple yet evocative. This one is very moving.
It is quiet there, that is why I need to be loud now. Great drawing. Made me sad about mom and how she has been silenced.
That's a thoughtful one, I like it.
yep, that's right! great concept and love the flowers you drew :)
Quiet as the grave, indeed. I like the contrast of serious and playful with the colors.
adore the colors...makes me smile...
You have some pretty inspired color choices. I'd like to see some desaturated background hues juxtaposed against those bright foreground flowers.
I love this quote!really makes one think....excellent sketch too
willie,I just visited my Dad's grave and would have loved seeing some flowers coming out of the ground like yours!Oddly enough, my mother is 86 and her days are numbered...the foundation on her markeris moving in the direction of Dad's ...kind of sweet.
Hello Willie :o))I love your illo, beautiful colours has your flowers, Best Wishes,Issi
Very nice concept!cheers
hehe thank you for not being sneaky but quite crafty in leaving a comment...keep it up...the craftiness not the sneakiness hehehe
Before reading other comments, I thought the black was an arched doorway and wondered where you would end up if you went through it, but now I realize it is a headstone. (I guess you could still wonder similarly.) The flowers are terrific.
This is a great post! I love the proverb and the colorful flowers.
It sure is quiet here, yet simple and full of life w/ the flowers!Thanks for the welcome! :DI am enjoying IF already! -chrismarie
I never thought of that quote in this sense. Nice work, I really like your simplicity. Adding to the truth only takes away from it, after all.
Beautiful and slightly morbid. And what a beautiful quiet dirt box.
great take on the theme!!
The flowers are a happy thought for someone. Simple and lovely.
HaHaHa! Very funny and original idea for this topic.Love it.
I think you've hit the topic on the head. There is no better way to represent quite than with a grave.. sad, but I like the flowers!
well said, I like your take and the colorful flowers make it feel like its going to be okay!
this is so quiet.... and proverb is really true :) and funny too.Saludos!
I did'nt know this Italian proverb...umh!nice illo, I like the flowers...very peculiar take on the topic ;)
Oh thats just brilliant illustration. Stopit! you're ruining it for the rest of us! :PI love it!
Hey Willie,So true--death the great unifier. Your drawing reminds me of some photos I took at Greenwood cemetery in New Orleans. It was a grey and overcast day, all of the monuments awash in varying shades of colorlessness, with the bold colors of the flowers and flags in stark contrast.Sincerely,Robert
love the quote and your illustration is far from quiet… those flowers speak volumes only i ca't hear them… it's too quiet…
hey... it's- it's-- tooo quiet- but for the flowers-I'm not sure what I think about the truth in the IP- have you ever seen King Tut's box?
Cool drawing. Awesome quote!
clever! (as always!).
Fantastic! I love this one so much! Those flowers are so wonderful!!
Thanks for stopping by! :-)Willie
