Illustration Friday: Suspend

I noticed that

Illustration Friday

had a spiffy new look and I've been itching to get back into participating.

This week's topic was "Suspend." I was inspired to explore a series of layout concepts rather than work on a single piece. I spent about 15-30 min per sketch. Baskets/ships suspended in the air by party balloons, over fields of gold, watched by field mice. As you can see, I fell in love with a certain color-palette.

It might be fun to pick one of these and make it into a final painting. Which is your favorite?
