Diva challenge 214 'nature inspired'

I didn't intend to do a 9x12 as a tile but I just went with the idea. Sun at night and day. Music listening to while drawing: Frank Sinatra. Used marker, micron pens and watercolor and pencil too. It'll make a good Mother's Day present at the least!

    1. Thanks. It started off in one half and then I just kept going. Tangling will do that sometimes!

  2. What a great idea for the Earth Day challenge because our Earth exists both night and day and in my half of the world, the day part is lengthening---and it's about time. Nice idea and execution!

    1. Thanks. I'm trying hard to use more composition in my work instead of getting a bit out of bounds! Thank you so much. Sarah.

  16. This is beautiful, I love the vibrancy of the colors, it just all works so well together. This is why I don't look at anyone else's work before I finish mine, I would just steal everything I see!
