I Friday- Renew


When I think of the topic Renew, I am drawn to the Easter holiday. There is so much renewal in the Springtime- flowers sprouting, baby animals, the days getting longer, etc. Maybe I don't think of renewal at this time of year because I haven't kept many New Year's Resolutions. I have to work on that.
So here is an image of a chick hatching. I've witnessed a few of those. I find newly hatched baby chicks to be frightening and cute at the same time. After they're completely dry, then they're 100% adorable.

I noticed that this is digital it has a look that is more tactile. Wonderful job. It has a soft sweet look.

Oh my, what a sweet illo!! You've done such a great job of capturing a hatchling! It's amazing how fragile they are when they're first born! Nicely done!
