“My Picture of Traveling”

Colored pencils; 8.5 x 11 inches

Absolutely gorgeous! This piece is a wonder for the eyes:  colorful, stunning, and wholly embraces the feel of traveling. There’s a thread of dreaming and wonder of discovering new places—seeing the whole big, beautiful world. The detail is phenomenal, utilizing all known travel destinations such as the Eiffel Tower, the Great Wall of China, Stonehenge—to name a few.
