I can't imagine what it's like for them to go through that. Loving your drawing and so grateful for your talent! I feel like I'm on the beach with the baby. :)
This picture is actually an old one from when I was learning how to use photoshop. I loved taking pictures but I too stubborn to learn how to improve them. So, I was not a good photographer- but I learned that I could salvage my pictures (or bits and pieces from them) and with some tools in photoshop (not filters) create illustrations. That is Annalee at the beach. She was probably two years old. I don't remember where I took the pictures of the boats.
Thank you so much for your kind words. It was very reassuring. The song you mentioned, How to Fight Loneliness, I had heard it before but never really listened to it on it's own. I love it. Thank you so much for that! I agree; when we see things like tsunamis, hurricanes, and earthquakes happening in other places, I think it really puts our lives into perspective. It reminds me to appreciate every single day, and to not wish my life away!
I agree! I did get a foot of snow yesterday but I'll take it!
