The little wanderer wants to visit a star but there are so many.
Should she choose the red one that smiles or
the white one that winks or the blue one that reminds her of home?

    I think the little wanderer should choose the one that smiles. Seems like she could have a fun adventure there. What an enchanting post!

    Choose the one that reminds you of home, little one. Then you will never be lonely.
    This has a wonderful ethereal feel. Great job!

    This is really beautiful! Reminds me of “The Little Prince”.

    Very nice! Excellent sense of emotional depth. I like the subtlety and softness of the colors and the forms.

    Thanks Debbie, Ginger, Chelise, Ella, Chris and Willie! :-)

    Ella, yup it was inspired by The Little Prince. I’ve loved that book since I was little.

    I love all the color and texture in this piece! It also has a lot of emotion in it’s tonality. You’ve definitely set a mood. Conceptually, it reminds me a bit of “The Little Prince” but it is so very different. Well done!

    ps I wrote this comment before I read up the page at the comments above it. :P

    I instantly flashed on the mental place I found myself in when reading Madeleine L’Engle’s book, A Wrinkle In Time. This is resonant, wow!

    Oh my, so charming but a little forlorn, too. Reminds me somehow of Saint Exupery’s ‘The Little Prince’ .

  18. valgalart said, on February 14, 2008 at 2:35 am

    the blue one for sure! Awesome!!! :P

  19. wee ellen said, on February 15, 2008 at 2:38 am

    OOOOOOOh, that’s an easy one! Choose the smile!

    hello everybody, thank you for your kind words :-)

  21. velvet said, on February 22, 2008 at 5:10 pm

    wow i love this too! you have such great works.. i sense isolation and innocence all in a dreamy scape. wonderful!

  22. berg said, on February 22, 2008 at 5:59 pm

    pick the blue one, girl! if you know what’s good for ya! coz we all know, the red one could just upside down, and the white one’s creepy… winking at a little girl?! hello?!?! ew!

    seriously though, this is fantastic. reminds me of “The Little Prince”… a great book I’ve always loved ever since I was 20 years old. *ahem* not too long ago *cough*.

    I agree with everybody’s adjectives above. wonderful work, joh! i’d like one of a boy, so that i could put the picture in my room and always be reminded of the little prince whenever i feel lost. :)

  23. nancy said, on March 9, 2008 at 9:16 am

    jo!

    the red one that smiles!

    this reminds me of the little prince(whom i love) who came from planet with 3 volcanoes and befriended a friendly fox.

    p.s. hehehe i just read the comments above. everybody’s thinking the same thing.

  24. johanna said, on March 11, 2008 at 3:02 am

    the little prince is such a beautiful story, isn’t it?

    thanks for your comments, everyone :-)

  25. mark said, on March 11, 2008 at 4:23 am

    Yeah, the little prince is wonderful. Hey remember that news story where they found one of the original drawings in a flea market in Japan?

  26. johanna said, on March 19, 2008 at 7:03 pm

    yeah, that was amazing. finding one of antoine de saint exupery’s drawings! wow

  28. Pattie said, on May 23, 2008 at 10:49 am

    She will KNOW exactly which one when she listens to her heart!
    Great sentiment in this piece…the viewer can feel it without the
    words…at least I can!!

  29. Deb G said, on May 25, 2008 at 2:09 am

    So sweet! She’s a dreamer too…

  30. Kirsten said, on May 25, 2008 at 3:47 am
