“These rough sketches, which are born in an instant in the heat of inspiration, express the idea of their author in a few strokes, while on the other hand too much effort and diligence sometimes saps the vitality and powers of those who never know when to leave off.” Giorgio Vasari

You can hear a tiny bit of Celtic Woman "Walking on Air" if you know the song... otherwise it is very faint.  Music is important when I work.  Messy fingers are leaving a trail of graphite on my keyboard as well. 

Will be finishing this up and then doing a coat of clear gesso on it before painting. I will add a verse or thoughts to it now as well. Every painting has a purpose, a lesson, a heart string...and every painting finds the heart that will take it home and love it for a lifetime.

Psalm 55:22 "Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken."
