Just love the drama of Henny! I know the feeling - I'm waiting for my ship, too! :)
Oh dear Henny! Reminds me of the French Leiutenants Wife!So evocative!DiX
That's so romanti-cal!
Oh, so THAT'S what my hen, May, has been doing lately! (We've built a new coop fence after fishing her out of both the pool and the hot tub again.)I hope that Henny doesn't require similar rescue efforts!
Henny, kindred soul of mine.
Ah, my heart goes out to Henny. *cue dramatic chipmunk*
I love her flowing scarf. Reminds me of Penelope waiting for Odysseus. You could call her Henny-Penny (ie. Penelope!). Ha! Love it.
Hello Elizabeth:We do so hope that when Henny's ship comes in she will be transported, together with you, back to our computer screens. You have been missed but we hope that you have had a lovely time.
What a scene! I love the use of space in this :)
It's the Lady Henny of Frenchman's Creek; she has decided to join her pirate lover.
I'm very curious what's going to happen.... and who is on that ship?
I'm sure it will arrive:)Love the drama:)
:) Wonderful! And great use of white space. Extremely dramatic, haha!
With that breeze Henny's ship will arrive very soon. Henny's shawl is just so great!
At least Henny can see the ship. It's just a matter of time!
I guess that's not her ship, seems to be passing her by. No matter, let that tiny dinghy pass, better to hold out for a big schooner; more likely to have a fancy pirate in it. Just be patient, Henny.
I love it!
There is something strangely romantic to this piece. Is she waiting for true love?
She needs to go out and meet it!
I am ultra-tuned!!
It's easy to see from Henny's attire that her ship is special.
It sounds like Henny's ship is expected to arrive in New York. (?)I betcha it's the Queen Elizabeth II (pun intended), not that tiny sail boat. DO TELL what happened on your journey last week, Elizabeth!The suspense is killing me.(Peet and Buttercup keep asking too.)
he he he he he he! Oh but you make giggle with excitement and fun. This is wonderful.
Really great illustration Elizabeth. Its amazing the magic you manage to create with a few simple lines! Genius! :)
Henny and me both! ;)
Aha waiting for something special I see!
Oh, I can't WAIT! So dramatic, the way her scarf is billowing in the wind! It's like an epic perfume ad. Hope it's a really really really big ship. She deserves no less.
Others have called it romantic, and maybe so. I call it wistful. The longing for outside forces to bring happiness. Ah Henny, you are the key to your own happiness! Be good to yourself and you shall attract many ships. Love the billowy scarf!
love it! amazing blog, I'm following. :)
I wonder how many ships sank after finally coming in. Shoot.
I hope her ship comes in for her!
Henny is looking a bit fabulous with a scarf in the wind... wonder what’s coming her way?... can’t wait to find out!x sandra
Oooh...the anticipation! I wonder where the boat's taking her... :)
It's me!!! I'm Henny!!!!!!! I'll take the ship, even if it's tiny.
Our Little Henny. Soon, chicky. Soon.
With that scarf Henny could just sail out to meet the boat herself. Unfortunately for her, though, it seems like the boat is sailing away - if that is the one she is waiting for. The drawing is so simplistic and yet delightful and full of character. I think you have a great stroke.
Aren't we all Henny...aren't we all...right there with ya girl!xo J~
I truly appreciate your comments.I try and reply, so be sure and come back!
