Love Enough

 This new spread began as pastels blended 
from the colors of a beautiful sunrise...

...But then I saw a face emerge from the page.
I'd been wanting to draw a face for a while now
and it finally found me.

And with the many tangled but ultimately loving thoughts
spiraling and swirling through my confused and tired brain,
the hair could only be this, stamped...

Then, colored pencils in lovely warm shades...because.

Peace & Love to each of you and to all of you.

I have two weeks left of school teaching... 
Summer begins, officially, soon.

Any plans for you?

Take care,

Beautiful and very creative. I "Love" the hair. Such a peaceful face you have drawn. Breathe and these two weeks will pass along. Then summer will bring you lots of YOU time. Blessings Dear...
