Grace and Peace

I was sitting outside this morning with Michael and pup, Ellie, in the warm sunshine. Sipping coffee. Listening to U2 "It's a Beautiful Day" and the rest of that CD.  Love it.  My mind focused in on certain words...


Below, still doodling and some collage...

Completed page below:


...for Kristin's Summer of Color, Brown Week...with a pop of bold color.  ♥Hope you enjoy!
Thanks for popping in.
