As one who constantly feels the need for simpler times, I think the Netherlands would be a place of bliss for me. This illustration and the quote are wonderful. Thank you!

I'm sure of it! You were from The Netherland in your previous life!!!! :) Manilla must be wonderful too! I think I will never have time to visit those two countries... :) But thanks to your beautiful drawing, I have an idea of how it feels! :) Don't forget, life is sometimes full of nice surprises!!!! ;o)

What a beautiful drawing, I love the simplicity of color and design. It has a wonderful atmospheric feel to it... I've never been to the Netherlands, but this drawing makes one long for it.

Very nice feel. It feels like a winters day.

and ooh wow cool you used my idea!

What a great quote! *G*

I like this drawing, and the addition of the blue overtone adds another dimension to it, creating a sense of solitude or isolation. Nicely done!
