This morning I finished adding colored pencil to a sketch of morning glories I made a month or so ago. I don't really have too much else to share, so a page or two or three from my art journal is my go-to today. However, I will share toward the bottom a poor snapshot of the moon last night. It had the best "Man in the Moon" face I've seen in my lifetime. Anyway, it wasn't until I had my drawing all colored that I realized I had spaced out on one of the leaves and drawn the veins the wrong direction:

I was fairly satisfied with it otherwise, but the blatant error got to me and I attempted to fix it:

|Can you see him?|
A kitty sketch page (not the page I wrote "Yikes" on). I'm enjoying trying "this and that" art.
And finally, in homage to the end of August and the upcoming unofficial end of summer (whether that's September 1 or Labor Day for you), here is a photo of a very tired, thinned out hibiscus that's still getting buds. However, the poor thing has really slowed down and the blooms are much smaller now. I guess summer has almost run its course, and soon this plant will, too.
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
