.....second half. The magic of joy and the joy of magic. I was inspired by Van Gogh's Starry Night. The pineapple is just good clean fun.
Another "highly prized" sketch.
Second half....I've added much more, just need my camera to upload the pics. Camera is at school, while I am trapped at home enduring a mini version of "snow-pocalypse" here in N. Texas.
Half of the layout for Sketchbook Challenge. Lots of fun to work based on a theme. Theme for January was "highly prized". This is about halfway complete.

New beginnings.....

"This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or in church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body....." -Walt Whitman
