"wilderness"~sketch for illustration friday 1/15/10


well, unfortuneatley, time did not permit me to be able to submit a finished painting for this week's i.f. theme of "wilderness":( however, i was so excited to be able to have SOME time to participate in it again (since i've been CRAZY BUSY these last few months w/custom work) that i didn't want to skip out on it this week. i figured the ROUGH pencil/pastel sketch here was better than nothing at all! although, i do have every intention of making a finished piece out of this...one day SOON i hope! enjoy:)))
