Foggy: Illustration Friday topic

The day was clear, so she realized that she was the only one in a fog.

Self portrait with migraine. Watercolor pencils.

(Added) I didn't really like the drawing above for this week's topic, so am adding this digital image. It is of the oldest schoolhouse in Colorado - in the fog.

The boring tapestry is getting to a more interesting place. Thanks goodness! I literally had to nap after weaving a bit both yesterday and the day before. Sad, when your work bores you to that extent! How, then, can I expect viewers to respond to it? Well, in it's defense, the title of the piece will be "February", and who wouldn't want to nap through the month of February?

I used to lose several days a month to migraines. Ugh...poor you :(
Nice portrait in spite of it!

You can see the pain in those eyes which shows you what a good drawing it is, but poor you! (Do you need more powerful glasses; this happened to me with some tapestery).

How true, what's going on inside determines outer outlook. I am sorry of the migraine, but the self portrait is wonderful.

*That little school house in the fog looks quite bleak. I can imagine little feet reluctantly going to school.
