Good Morning Kisses


This lovely illustration comes from an ancient book of children's poetry, which was printed in the early 1900's. I love the elegant graceful lines of this artist's pen and ink drawings. I have had the book in my possession forever. I'm sure it is one I've treasured since childhood--the beauty of these drawings have been a big influence my own style of drawing.


Daddy Update: I stayed until dark last night, and Dad seemed to be doing a lot better. I'm so glad it will not be as hot today--with that collar he must wear to stabilize his neck, the heat was really bothering him. Thank you so much for your prayers!

My little grandson always gives me good morning kisses when he spends the night with me!

I can see this artist's influences in your work! Clean, simple, nature, beautiful lines.

How long do you think your Dad will have to wear the collar. I hope that it stays cool for him!
