Lonely is the Illustration Friday word this week and I must admit that I think I've missed the mark here because although this little girl is alone she's not really lonely. How could she be when the trees and lamp posts have been so wonderfully decorated. Perhaps it's all the people in the background, at the edge of the park, who aren't enjoying the wonderful yarn bombing who are the lonely ones. You can definitely feel lonely in a crowd. This is a reduction linocut inspired by a picture I saw of a yarn bombing in Seattle. Thank-you to all the knitters out there who stage these magical events!
