Memorial Day 2015

"And I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me." - Lee Greenwood

Blessings

 There have been numerous blessings this week, which make for a very fantastic life.
 Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial start to summer and a time to remember those who gave their lives in the service of our country. We are blessed to live in a country that views freedom as a valuable asset in the pursuit of happiness. 
The girls came home this summer and we are lucky to have them with us once again.
 Allie got hit with a killer sickness (post graduation recovery) and one of my friends made her some fresh juice. It was so kind of Robyn to create a healing tonic for my sick baby.
We visited with Jon's mom who is recovering from hip surgery. It was a relief to see her in good spirits and able to start physical therapy.
We played tennis with some friends and loved being back in their company.

Daily Sketches: May Flowers

Sketch #22 is a simple fuchsia flower. I like the petals and how flow-y they are.
Sketch #23 is a fun take on a petaled flower with stripes and a gradient for the petals. I like how whimsical it is.

Daily Sketches: May Flowers

Sketch #21 is a fun take on a flower with a face. Artists have been adding faces to the center of flowers (the flower head) forever, so why not give it a try?
