New video posted!
This a short video on the making of this illustration in my Crossway ESV Single Column Journaling bible.
This is how sunrises look in some parts of Alaska in late summer. The fireweed is in full bloom and it's vivid pink and purple flowers glow when the sun shines on them.
Summer is winding down quickly here, the nights are getting cold and it is getting dark earlier every day. However, with the arrival of the darkness also comes the arrival of the stars and the northern lights. We don't see them in the summer because it doesn't get dark.
I am going to miss the sunrises though. In the winter, the sun rises in the south and sets in the south. I have a large mountain to the south and the sun barely makes it high enough in the sky to peek over that mountain, in the darkest days of winter.
Because of this, the dawning sun is always wonderful and appreciative occurance, when we are in the heart of the dark winter.

I enjoyed the fingerprint tree that I drew for my nephew's wedding so much that I wanted one of my own!
I Chronicles 16:28-34 mentions families and trees, all praising the Lord!

It's been hot here, by Alaska standards, and the heat makes me tired. Blah.
I have been hanging out in our little swiping pool, that is heated by a little woodstove my husband built. It's very nice floating around in my pool chair but I doesn't allow for much productivity. Oh well, gotta soak up the sun while we still have it this far north.
I have started a new drawing. It is slow going, can't rush details! I will watercolor it after I an finished with the drawing part.
