Illustration Friday: Tranquility

This is my submission for this week's illustration friday topic, tranquility. It was too big to fit on my scanner so I had to take a photograph of it...the colors are still a little off, but you get the idea. It's a picture of my sister, Lauren, who loves to wear giant hats. I think she looks very glamourous in them...like the old movie stars. I painted her standing in a river...she's preparing for her wedding, so I think she deserves a river that carries cares away.
