fly me to the moon...

fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars


This week I join a drawing challenge.
It's a challenge where a host picks a theme and people post a work
inspired by it on their blog. This week the host is Patrice A.
With a very inspiring subject: the moon

I immediately had this song of Frank Sinatra in my head.
My work is inspired by the first sentence:

'fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars...'

Wouldn't that be just wonderful?
