Illustration Friday: Garden


I am a rose of Sharon,
a lily growing in the valley.

A lily among thorns
is my dearest among the maidens.

Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest,
so is my beloved among young men.
To sit in his shadow is my delight,
and his fruit is sweet to my taste.
He has taken me into the wine-garden
and given me loving glances.

-Song of Songs 2:1-2:4

Nice line work. Good design, appealing pose and expression. Good gesture. I like your illlustration a lot. It all works well together.
