Illustration Friday - Forgotten

This week's topic is "Forgotten," and I instantly thought of poor Little Red, who is sadly forgotten on the shelf:


"The Secret Garden"

I have a little garden
I keep it on a shelf
My garden is a secret
For no one but myself

Hurt Feelings

Why do there always have to be hurt feelings? Why can’t anything just be happy and good, and stay that way? Little Red used to like to pretend he was one of his plant friends, but sadly was left behind on the shelf. It sucks to be forgotten, doesn’t it.

Poor Little Red.

I'm going to try to create another piece for this theme too, if I have the time. The problem is that everything I can think of is really sad, and, well, sad is just so sad!

Oh! Poor little thing, he looks so sad!

Elizabeth Victoria Knowles said...

Thanks Steve, Brokeneyeball, Rawtoast & Bobocat!

I confess that this was a painting I had already done about two months ago, I posted it because it fit the theme so well & I wasn't sure I'd be able to get my other idea done in time (although I'm going to try!)

Oh, this IS sad. I just want to cuddle Little Red! I really love her secret garden. How fun! If I had a garden like that, I'd keep it a secret, too.

this is so rich and lovely... just an amazing piece. wish little red wasn't sad, though; hope he cheers up today.
