My reference photo for this drawing is one that I took several years ago on our back deck.  I have loved that photo and have wanted to draw or paint it for a long time.  Well, tonight, I gave it a try.  I am so happy with it!  I have been taking courses from The Virtual Instructor, teaching it, and practicing.  Thank the Lord, I am improving.  I have no idea how this skill can be used to glorify the Lord, but I hope that I can use it that way, someday.  For now, I am enjoying it and I hope others are.

This was done in my sketchbook, with graphite, so there is another drawing showing through.  I didn't really expect it to turn out well, or I would have used some good paper.
