Illustration Friday & Inspire Me Thursday theme "Leap"...and updates on my Grandfather...



Mr. Leap of Faith Avenue...always wondered why he seemed to be missing mail...

I wasn't sure I was going to do any illustrations for a few days....but I couldn't sleep and kept eyeing my sketchbook...so here is a quickie for IF and IMT...

I would like to thank everyone who left me all the supportive comments about my Grandfather...it means a lot to me to hear from you ...and I am grateful....

we spent today with him in the hospital and it was nice to be able to actually talk to him and he understood me and responded...his condition is not getting any better at the moment...so we pray and hope for the best....
