Illustration Friday-Maria-Scattered

Hello World! I was going through my kids old drawings that I have meant to scan and put on here and I found this cute/quick sketch Maria did of a bunch of squirrels running around a tree. I went onto Illustration Friday and saw that the word was "Scattered" and thought that this would work really well.

God Bless You,

Jeremiah 31:10 ESV

“Hear the word of the LORD, O nations, and 
declare it inthe coastlands far away; say, 
‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, and 
will keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock.’"

Illustration Friday-Maria-Hibernate

It's funny how art happens. I tell my daughter the word for this week and she kind of shrugs it off. Then out of nowhere she hands me a drawing that I don't think lives up to her potential. I scan it, and open it in Photoshop to darken it a bit so it stands out, and I think it looks amazing now because it now has a textured look in the background (I'm known to like rough pencil sketches more than finished projects). It's weird how you can change your mind about something when you look at it in a different light.

I really like how she signed her name inside of that rock. Fun!

May God Bless You,

Psalm 4:8

"I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety."
