Flattery.....Flamingo Friday style

I'm a huge fan of Eric Carle.
I mean, really....that whole Brown Bear thing?
Just wonderful.
And don't even get me started on that Hungry Caterpillar!!

The illustrations he uses in all of his books are just so very nice. one of my all-time favorite pictures:
*Google pictures*
The picture is so simple, yet.....I love it.

A few weeks ago, we went to the local museum and walked through the annual exhibit by the students at the area Art & Design High School.  I was incredibly impressed by the level of art that these high school kids did.  But...the one set of pictures that really got my attention had this particular picture.... right in the middle:
I love this.

I wrote on the questionnaire I filled out about our visit that I thought the artist
"captured the true feeling of Eric Carle and made it her own".

I may have written that I'd love to have a copy.  (^-^)/*
I'm not sure if the girls who read the questionnaire actually understood what I wrote, but....
I'm hoping that they did and that Karma is still on my side, because
that painting? Oh yeah...just one more thing that has MY NAME written all over it!!! 

Have a great Friday.
May you find something that you really, really  like....and if can't have it for yourself, I hope
you have your camera with you!!!

Is there any place we can "vote for Debbie to get the Flamingo?" Because it totally does have your name on it!!! Happy Weekend!

I'm so with you on this one. And, I, too, adore Eric Carle.

Did you ever get a chance to check out that link I sent you? That flamingo is kinda cool, too, don't you think?
