Breezy


Each night Issy would take out her favorite hair magazine and pray for
luxuriously long fabulous hair that was "Breezy" and easy just like the girl in the
magazine ad. Issy had an aunt Nessa who was bald and she prayed for her too.
he he he!

Little darlin'! It's like watching those ads on TV - girls with hair that dances and shines and flips and flops so impossibly beautifully! Deliciously lovely illo, Vanessa!

I still dream (at night not just day dreams!) of having long breezy hair. The reality is rather different!

Tomás Serrano said...

It seems you break your record about hair with this!!!

bonaska said...

The girl who dreams of her future! Very nice. I also like the very cute boys with glasses, but the better the picture in red: Ahhhh, finally a Little Red Riding Hood worthy of all children! Little Red and wolf friends! This makes a beautiful fairy tale that I have always seemed a bit grim! Brava!

murphy girl said...

get zapped said...

Adorable post. And clever. I think until we have all that flowing hair, we want it. But, it's a chore to care for! With that said, I hope she gets her wish :)

krisztina maros said...

Coat Mos said...

Hi Vanessa,your illustrations are wonderful. I look at your pictures daily and always see a refreshing picture that touches the kid at heart in me. I have been looking for an email address for you so I can dialogue with you regarding digital illustration. Let me know how you can be contacted. Have a great day.

Renee said...

I know I have said it to many times to count, but I love your art, adore it in fact.

xooxo

Does any one really have breezy hair? In all the adds for hair products on TV the small print on screen says whoever it is's hair has hair extensions! No wonder they have breezy hair! Your illustration is sweet and I love the previous glasses one, the hair on thats great too. My other half has breezy hair its so breezy it blew away and now he's blald!!! Ha ha. Have a lovely weekend Jane xxx

carla said...

You have such a lovely, whimsical style! This is really a sweet illo - the interpretation and the execution:)

LuLu said...

Bonjour Vanessa! What a wonderful illustration! Your style is just great, there is not word for it! When I was a kid, I was quite the contrary! I had long thick hair and was dreaming about having very very short hair a la African American top model style! Hope you have a HAPPY weekend! Take care, LuLu

Citrus Tree Designs said...

I know just how she feels...

Retinna Bell said...

This is such a great illustration. I feel her pain. I used to actually dream about it. Now, I'm going all natural. God bless all your endeavors.

Björnik said...

Hi Vanessa. Thanks for leading me to this lovely blog of yours. I just love how your illustration style tells a story.:) This one's very cute.:D

Kendra Joyner said...

WELL KIDS...if you drink "Nutra Kid"... you can have all that hair and more! hehehehehehe! Great illo! And love the kids with glasses below!

Thanks for checking out my new farm blog! I'm still believing for it...no matter how long it takes! I mean...I've got to get started growing vegetables for your Nutra Kid orders!! You know?

Kay Aker said...

I love this one Vanessa! I was born with wavy hair that had trouble braiding and my daughter has hair thin and straight and will not do anything.. we always want something else and I love that your drawing comes out with it... we can dream can't we? I have a teen who has started coloring her hair and yesterday lamented over her school photo from last year saying"mom do you remember when I was a blonde, I liked my hair better then than now." just last night.. I kid you not! this is a perfect illustration and once again you amaze me! love and happy saturday! Marianne
I put up my daughter's latest treasury on my website come see her viewpoint if you can... she wrote a poem..

DEB said...

How entertaining! Love your illustration AND your prose!!

Asja said...

your work is always so imaginative and inspiring and this illustration is no exception, it's such a great response to the topic and a real visual gem!

Roberta said...

She's beautiful just the way she is.... You're always spot on every week!!

Teri C said...

This is wonderful. It reminds me of my granddaughter who has the most beautiful curly hair and prays for straight hair.

Kendra Joyner said...

Hey Vanessa...I don't have my farm yet...so no growing things yet...it's just something I feel God has put in my heart to have...but He will have to provide it!! So I started a blog to step out in faith and claim this desire in my heart...you know? So the pics on there are just what's in my head of what I want....until then, I live in suburbia...so no growing unless it's in pots :)

Mônica said...

Oh, that's so true. Those shampoo commercials always made me wish for long, shinny and breezy hair! :-)

Bella Sinclair said...

HA! Boy, do I wish for long, fabulous shampoo-ad-worthy hair. I remember my mom giving my perms in the 80s (my hair is stick straight), and the photos ---- ooooooh, man, are they hideous! But not this little girl. She is already cute as a button. Don't change a thing. Wonderfully fun and wistful illo. But of course. :D

Indigene said...

Lol! What's really funny is if she had it like that, she wouldn't want it! Trust me, I know, because the thought of combing my hair or my daughter's send shivers up and down my spine...lol! This is a wonderful illustration! But, really, I didn't expect anything less, from..Ooh La La...:)

Amy C said...

this is such a lovely composition, I love how she looks so deep in her thoughts, this must be how I look when I am wishing my hair wasn't so frizzy!

Owl Eng said...

ah!! it is my dream too - i am just like the little girl always dreaming of having long black silky hair like the lady you've created here.
Nice and beautiful as usual ;p

James Parker said...

Vanessa...I love your blog, your artwork...and that frog on your shoulder. I hopped on your follower shoulder. Thanks for stopping by my blog and I sure hope you will participate in Windows to the Words...it would be fantastic to see what you could do with the kids. Also..drop me an E-Mail...I need your permission for "Making Do"

Shannon Melville said...

this is a gorgeous illustration and i love her cute innocent prayers, we're all meant to have faith like a child aren't we? Imagine how much nicer the world would be if people had faith like a child?
