Happy Independence Day!

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.

Have a lovely and safe Independence Day!!

Hi Michelle-- thank you so much for your lovely post!

i love this illustration! The line work, characters, perspective, and the loose washes all work perfectly. I can see in their faces and the way you used the blue/purple washes that they are seeing a beautiful firework display!

Hope you had a great Fourth!
