Illustration Friday - Twirl


Lithe and long as the serpent train,
Springing and clinging from tree to tree,
Now darting upward, now down again,
With a twist and twirl that are strange to see.
- from The Grape Vine Swing by William Gilmore Simms

It is too perfect that today's Illustration Friday prompt is "Twirl" - I just posted this print yesterday as one of the prizes in my latest random drawing. 

On 2/2 two random winners will be selected from everyone who comments on my blog before 1 a.m. EST on Feb. 2nd.  One Prize is a 5" sq print of this dizzying Diva. The other prize is a print of my ACEO Peacock Masquerade, which you can see here. 

So, if you'd like to enter the drawing, please leave your thoughts. Prizes ship free worldwide.
