HAPPY HOLIDAYS! The blessings we ask for this season
Aren't the kind that come wrapped with a bow;
We're asking for gifts from the heart,
Ones we need and never outgrow.
May we see in these bright decorations
With their colors and lights all aglow,
The beauty and wonder of life
That God's world was created to show.
Let the peace and goodwill of this season
Be feelings that we can extend
Far into the following year
To our neighbors, our family, and friends.
Most of all, may we always remember
To open our hearts every day and share all the love and the joy
In a special and meaningful way.
Thank you Betty! In answer to your question...all of my illustrations are hand drawn. I work with graphite, color pencil, pastels, watercolor and a little pen & ink. Sometimes, I do use computer software to help me with the layout and perspective of the elements by taking a hand drawn sketch and basically cutting it apart within the program and then moving the elements around until I'm happy with the composition. When I am happy with how everything looks, I then hand paint the sketches.
