This is my entry for IF's "open" topic. Created specifically for this challenge.

There is a contest, and the winner's get their work hung in a new gallery. I'd love your vote! Here's how to do it...

Log into the IF Forums (http://illustrationfriday.com/forum) or create a new account if you don't have one already (http://illustrationfriday.com/forum/register.php), then go to the Link Viewer (http://illustrationfriday.com/linkviewer.html) and scroll through the entries to find your favorites and click the grey star! I go by Digital Scott.

Little boxes like this usually hold some special trinket. Very nice. I like the textures in your background, too.

You've got a nice hand-series going on here. I, too, really like the colors and textures of this, as well as the simple idea well-executed!

Sometimes the best things come in small packages - glad you had an entry this week Scott - this is a great piece - you've really captured the sense of mystery and anticipation one has when opening a box - simple but powerful imagery! And the hand work, and textures - wonderful! Love it!

The careful way the hands are holding the box shows that there is definitely something precious inside. Very nice!
