HAPPY NEW YEAR
Water Color Crayons/Ink
This is my first little drawing of the new year, at 8:27 am EST. I love the richness of water color crayons. First, I just took a black permanent pen and did the sketch; then I added the color and, lastly, took my paintbrush and moved the color around.
I stayed up past midnight to see the new year in. I have yet to concede and go to bed before that. After all, another year is gone that we'll never have again. I think about how fortunate I am to have a home in a wonderful place and how important that is....to feel safe and secure. And I have HOPE because if you don't have HOPE, you have nothing at all. Every year we HOPE that the next one will be a little bit better. I'm keeping my fingers crossed (and throwing in lots of prayers).
