Thanks to the Men & Women that have served!!!

and continue to serve the FREEDOM afforded us in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!
Planning on enjoying some friends and family over the extra day off!!!  Our flag is flying proudly!!

For Sunday Sketches I came across an old (1990) sketchbook I had from a community education drawing class...I have had no time to do anything this past week.  I have decided I need to refocus and reorganize (maybe just keep organized) my artroom...back to calling it that...studio gives me too much credit for what I should have and don't have going on in this room!!! Choas pretty much just choas - not alot of art!!! So while cleaning I flipped through my books!  This just makes me smile and isn't that what this weekend is about...WE in this country can smile and should MORE OFTEN.

Thanks to Sophia for hosting - and all the artists that contribute, my apologizes for not getting around promptly!  If you have a few extra minutes... you have to check out Pat and Ann's work from the Every Day in May challenge...great stuff, wish I was that disciplined and ORGANIZED to have participated!
cheers, have a safe and happy holiday where ever you are!!!!

Para dibujar és necesario tener imaginación y ésta imaginación te ayuda a soportar las apatias de tu vida.

SALUDO JUAN
