IF- "Worn"

The jeans in this illustration were actually toddler jeans "worn" by my daughter. The deep green of the grass was a pair of linen pants I wore until they were "worn" out, sad day when they went to the fabric box in the studio. I have been known to on a desperate day retire a piece of clothing sooner than I should if the texture of it is too irresistible for an illustration I am doing, my kids have learned to guard their treasured clothes and with them slowing down growing- I don't have as much opportunity these days. Thrift stores are wonderful places for "worn" linen hand towels, a great texture I wish I had more of.
