This little sketch is from my art journal. When I travel I take my art journal and a few sets of colored pencils…minimizing packing art supplies is not easy! The words on this piece “preserve what you love in life” does have a special meaning. I’m presently visiting my younger daughter (my hubby is home supervising a bathroom remodel while I have fun…he is a great guy!) and taking care of her little doggie while she travels for a few days. My older daughter is further away. We visit and text a lot but we only see one another a few times a year. The last couple times we’ve visited she has canned pears, apples, you name it, she loves all that domestic “stuff”. So, today my thoughts were with her and I pictured the mason jars she is filling with the future bounty they will enjoy!
