I love looking at the theme for ''Illustration Friday''. Sometimes I am not inspired to make an image, sometimes the week has been too busy. It is a challenge to come up with something in between the hustle and bustle of daily life. That made me think about how dusty the house gets this time of year. All the pollen from the summer weather, the grass and dust coming through open windows. Then at the end of a week finding time to get cleaning and keep all that dust at bay. I used pastel to conjure up a dusty atmosphere, it is very dusty in this picture. Maybe I am feeling guilty that this weekend I didn't do any dusting.

This illo gives such a real feeling of "dusty" that it makes me want to cough!

Lol! I can taste the dust in this one! I stopped dusting to follow my creative flow this week and I think my home looks like this picture. Is it an artist thing?! At least that's my excuse. Here's to having a wonderful week ahead, with or without dusting. :)

Very cool! I'm rubbing my eyes and coughing just looking at it!
