Bicycle "Two-fer", Illustration Friday

How did I get so lucky while playing hooky from IF? Last week's "Journey" took me away from posting something on topic. I woke today to find the challenge for the week is "Bicycle," and as luck would have it, I could pull something out of the archives to cover both! On Friday, even!
This adventurous little boy, with the help of a magical bird went on a journey to transform himself into a bird. Here, he rides a bicycle to convince his friend that even under all the feathers, he is indeed a boy.
Happy Easter to all of you blogging "Peeps!" May you continue to find much inspiration in the celebration of springtime and its symbolic messages of renewal and growth!

  3. You have got all sides covered this week then Michele! That lad looks as though he could fly on his bike - I love his feathers. Wishing you too the very happiest of Easters and all the joys of springtime.

  9. I loved your comment on my blog today. I will see if I can find the catalog I tore the pony bike from. I keep praying for a real one to appear on my lawn someday too. Here is to dreaming big.

  10. Poor bird! He he he he he he he! Oh my goodness how cute and wonderful. This brought a big ol smile to my face. Right in the middle of my biggest move ever. Yup relocating to Charlotte, NC and it's been super busy and that is why I haven't been able to blog like I want, but I had to sneak in one little moment to visit my peeps. Hope that you are doing well and staying out of trouble.... okay... I hope that you are well! he he he he he he
    Miss you so much and thinking of you today.

    Charming drawing, Michele. I think I start mine just now and include the illustration next week! I have been so busy last weeks.
    Yes, I'd like to see and smell your flowers... Have you been troubled by the huge tornados?
