Geat illo, and great concept.
That would be cool. Just to pick them right out the sky. Lovely work.
I adore this! Monica, what brand of watercolors do you use? I love the muted look to them. I have been enjoying playing around with watercolors. Do you ink first or after the watercoloring?
beautiful! I always love your work...
this is absolutely gorgeous....
This is so adorable....and he is so cute! nice work!
Thank you all for your lovely comments!Loni: I use Winsor and Newton watercolors, Cotman and Artist's brands. I usually ink the drawing first, and then add the watercolor (I use pen and nib, and FW Acrylic Ink). For this illustration, however, I applied watercolors first, and then I used a black Prismacolor pencil to do the outline. :-)
What an inspiration this is! Yes, reach for the stars and you won't wind up with a fistful of dirt -- who said that? Ogilvy??? I forget. Anyway, this is adorable and wonderful.
What a great idea and lovely painting. Every day I try to get my star that's makes live beautiful.
Aaah, what an endearing little bear! Lovely illustration Monica!
Thanks Monica! I bought a little field kit of Windsor and Newton half pans. I really love them and want to do more stuff with them. I would like to get some more colors. That's interesting you use a pen and nib. I usually use a micron or prismacolor pen for my outlining, but find that many times the pen doesn't hold the weight of the ink and feathers a lot. I will have to try your technique sometime. Maybe ink and brush for me though would be more my style. Thanks for the info. Your work is beautiful!
Beautiful illustration. Oh I just wish this wasn't impossible ;)
This is so cute! the colors are beautiful
Fantastic work. I love your delicate touch and soft colors and lines. Nice!!
Wonderful sentiment and a sweet bear to match!
Oh... I love this idea Mon!! This would make a great card too! :o)

Wonderful! Charming and uplifting. I hope he tucks that star right into his pocket. =)
"catch a falling star and put it in your pocket...." ^_^cute teddy!

Bonito trabalho e texto tambem hehe..gostei muito das cores tambemParabensAte mais e grato pela visita e comentario
not only to reach for the stars but to grab them!awesome, good blue too!
SO cute. Reminds me of something I just heard on NPR--shooting stars aren't really stars. They're space dust, no bigger than a grain of sand, but magnified through our atmosphere. I had no idea!
You constantly amaze me with your adorable characters and wonderful color. I want to take that lil bear home.
