Cloudy Day Nap

After all the hard work she's been doing over the past few weeks, the sweet angel has decided to get a little cloudy day shut-eye!

This is a pen and ink drawing I scanned into the computer. The drawing is one of my very first experiments adding digital color, using a VERY old computer paint program. It is rare for me to add color using the computer. I prefer the old fashioned way of doing things!

So sweet. Makes me want to curl up on the cloud and take a little snooze myself.

She has been busy this year and surly does need some much needed rest. While she's resting I know there is another little Angel watching over you and yours until this one awakes. May you and yours Forever be Blessed. Merry Christmas. Love and Light, Nina P

Beth - Thank you so much for your WORDS.... I can't begin to tell you (yet) how much they mean to me. Eventually I will try in "voices III". For now, may God bless you.....

Beth it is very nice.
I understand you completely when you say.."you prefer the old fashion way..".. I do too!
There is so much more character in going it the ofw!
this is very nice though.
Hugs, Darlene

Lovely, she looks like she is glowing :) and I agree, there's just something about adding color the old fashion way. Although hopefully someday I'll give in and start experimenting more with the computer.
