Title or Location: Come, Everyone Who Thirsts
I started this piece sitting in the hospital waiting room, waiting on a friend. I was contemplating those in unfortunate circumstances and in need of hope, and I was reminded of this passage in Isaiah 55:1-3 in the Bible. I often combine my love for watercolor and lettering with my contemplations of what I read, painting in my Interleaved journal Bible.

Title or Location: Elephant
I drew this in white and gray color pencil on black card stock. The reference was a photograph on Penterest (no photographer listed). I love doing what I refer to as shadow drawings for several reasons. One being that I can express myself artistically without tiring my arthritic hands. ( I?m 82) and another being it induces the viewer to use thir imagination!

Title or Location: Owl
I?ve always sketched, mostly animals and attempts at portraits of people, which have always been hit or miss. I?ve recently taken up woodburning and some of the animals and other things I?ve done with that medium are among my favorites. Currently, I?m working on incorporating epoxy to some of the burns and after some learning curves, figuring it out.

Title or Location: A Place to Breathe
I wanted to create a place of tranquility and quiet. A retreat into nature where you can take a moment to breathe. There is a hush over the valley. The storm is over and the water quietly continues on its way much as it has always done. It is here I invite you to stay for a moment or two and rest.
