wow a month has past since my last post

Sometimes life is just to hectic!  Family and work needs come before my art it's been awhile.  I peek in from time to time but haven't had time to even really comment.  I soooooooooooo miss blogland!!!
Today I am sharing my Sunday morning crash art!  I was asked by a WWII vet to do a painting, depending on how much I would charge of course.  He is on a fixed income and is 89 yrs. old.  He has a friend in Las Vegas that just became an Evangical Minister and wants a specific painting done for her birthday.  He told me that he has always called her his "Nevada Angel" so he wants:
a map of Nevada showing Las Vegas, a church in the corner, an angel above and the sky to go from day to night with stars.  Obviously he has this pictured in his mind.  So here is what I did this morning (he needs it by tomorrow and this is the first day off I have had that I could stay at home to work on it), talk about last minute.

Hope he likes her!!!  and hope the recipient likes it!  Sharing this today at Sunday Sketches hosted by Sophia!  So much talent to see at this site!  Please visit!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to be online again...I miss my art world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

p.s. he is a Veteran - no way would I charge him!!!  I can paint because I live in a free country which he helped provide!
