Happy 4th of July!

Sadie is back in all her patriotic glory, to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July. 
I was hoping to find the time to complete this sketch and I did... in between making batches of potato salad, gazpacho dip, and red/white/blue jello desserts! This week has been all about "the balancing act" of home, family and HOLIDAYS! =)
My gal Sadie, was a welcome distraction to what has been a hectic few days. There she sat patiently at my desk, her black and white sketch smiling up at me as if to say, I know you can finish. It was wonderful to see her come to life again - and making quite the fashion statement, too! She really is the diva of the forrest.
Thank you all for your daily visits. For everyone in the states, have a wonderful and relaxing holiday and for the rest of the world, here's to a great weekend. Cheers!

She's adorable, Lisa! Happy Independence day to you and yours, as well.

And thanks for the tip on my blog! I might try that with a few of the items we have around. It would be fun to decorate them too. :c)

I visit your blog frequently but this is the first time for posting a comment. Your art is full of positive energy. It's light, creative, beautiful and inspirational. Sadie is dear. Your 21-day challenge is very impressive too. Thank you for sharing your art with us.
