Happy 4th of July! ~ New Work, Work in Progress, & Resource of the Week


For all who celebrate it, I just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July!
It's hard to believe it's already July. Time just flies.
So sorry I haven't been posting as of late. I have been having some breathing problems, and just found out, about a week or so ago, that  I have asthma. Not much fun, the doctor has me on an inhaler now, but will be going into a specialist at the end of the month.

NEW WORK
I finished up a new piece the other day. Inspired by a prompt at Ellen Million's Sketchfest http://www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/sketchfest/
and the Christian fantasy book "Taliesin" by Stephen Lawhead. There is something about the skies and heavens that really get my muse going. Love watching the clouds form and the stars at night.
