Sunday Sketches: Temporary places filled w/love


I've been on the road and in California with my baby brother for about a week now.  Although it's been quite the emotional journey (ups and downs), overall, it's been really good being with my brother, holding him when he needs held, laughing when the time is right and building new memories - all things needed during a very tragic time in his life.  Please continue to lift him up in your thoughts and prayers.

The picture above has been my temporary "art studio" and will be for a few more days.  On Monday, we'll be staying at a new place for a few weeks and looking forward to spending more time with other family and such.  Mr. Toast will be joining us here in about two weeks and I can't wait.  Currently, he is back home taking care of the pups and such.

Mr. Piggie is yet another illustration completed for the Kids Hope USA project.  Isn't he darling?  Makes you want to scoop him up and kiss his nose, yes?  Hee  :)

I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone this week (and from last week!)  Terribly sorry to be so delayed and hoping everyone is doing well.
