Illustration Friday - Contagious

This week's word is contagious.
Seems as though this word has been in the media a lot lately....mostly connected to negative things and events like Fear and the Flu Du Jour.......which is/was, I guess, more fear, really.
As a perennial Optimist and a "glass half full" cheerful sort......here is my contribution.
While this tender moment might be illustrating the possible swapping of germs, I'd rather think that the sweetness and warmth of Young Love, any love, is, indeed, contagious!

Back to painting secret picture book spreads......soon, soon!

Lovely! I love the clothes - the knit sweater and scarf and the fabric on the girls skirt. Also the birds - well, now, I guess I love it all!
